A Simpler and Faster Way to Fill Out the FAFSA

Tips for Completing the FAFSA


Each year, about 15 million students apply for grants, work-study, and loans for college using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid – the FAFSA.

In many cases, the FAFSA is the only application needed for students to obtain aid from their state or college, too.

Recent changes make it quicker and easier than ever to fill out the FAFSA. This video offers tips to help students get started.
