FAFSA: The How-To Guide for High School Students (And the Adults Who Help Them)
One of the first steps of going to college is filling out the FAFSA.
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 the first step if you want financial aid from the federal and state government or most colleges. Filling out the FAFSA can be intimidating. Don’t worry. Just try it.
The booklet FAFSA: The How-To Guide for High School Students (And the Adults Who Help Them) can be a helpful tool to guide you through the process.
FYI: Since the FAFSA is based on your income, you must have your taxes done prior to completing the FAFSA.
