FAFSA? What’s that?
If you need money to go to college, you probably need to fill out the federal government’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid, better known as the FAFSA. This is an important first step if you want/need financial aid from the federal and state government or most colleges.
The process can sometimes seem overwhelming, so this booklet was designed to help guide you through the process. FAFSA: The_How-To Guide for High School Students (And The Adults who Help Them) may be a useful tool to help you better understand how to fill out the FAFSA form.
You will need to have your completed tax form done prior to completing this form, and hopefully this book answers most of your questions.
