College Financial Aid

 
Filling out the FAFSA allows students access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school. The FAFSA is a free form that is completed to determine eligibility for financial aid to go to colleges and universities. It should be completed at the same time college applications are done in the Fall of Senior year of High School.
