Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step toward getting financial aid for college, career school, or graduate school. The FAFSA not only gives you access to the$150 billion in grants, loans, and work-studyfunds that the federal government has available, but many states, schools, and private scholarships require you to submit the FAFSA before they will consider you for any financial aid they offer.

Whether you’re filling out the FAFSA for yourself, helping your child, or are in a position to help others fill out the FAFSA, we have the resources for you.

The FAFSA is free and only takes an average of 23 minutes to complete. Get started at www.FAFSA.gov.
