Even if you think that you will not get aid, you should fill out the FAFSA because you may be surprised what you are eligible for. Most students at most colleges and universities are able to get some form of financial aid to help pay for their education.
Remember that the FAFSA is only used to give you options. You are not agreeing to anything, including loans, by filling it out. On the other hand, not filling it out may limit your options.
Step 1: Go to fsaid.ed.gov
Step 2: Go to studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa and fill out the FAFSA
Step 3: Watch for your Student Aid Report (SAR)
Note: You may be selected for the Verification process. If this happens, do not panic. About 30% (or more) of students are selected. You will need to follow the instructions that you are given – much of this is handled with the financial aid department of your chosen school. If you need help with this process, let us know.
If you are chosen, it is important for you to work with the Financial Aid Office of the college you are planning to attend.
