Financial Aid Information
FAFSA stands for "Free Application for Federal Student Aid". What does that mean for you? Free money!
The FAFSA is used by colleges and universities to determine how much help you need financially. Most schools require you to fill out the FAFSA to be eligible for any of their scholarships as well, even those that aren't need based (like academic scholarships, for example).
