We recommend that families with seniors who plan on attending college complete a FAFSA form. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is a government form that helps colleges determine if a student qualifies for Federal and State Aid. Even if you feel that you will not qualify, it is a good idea to fill out this form. For those that do not qualify for grants (money that does not need to be repaid), there are Federal loan programs available that offer very competitive interest rates. The FAFSA form is available online. To get started, visit the FAFSA website and begin step one.
For assistance with the FAFSA form, visit the following website or call your son/daughter’s counselor.
