which fafsa form do i file
Which FAFSA form do I file?
  • Each college sets its own deadline regarding financial aid, but it is in your best interest to file the FAFSA (and any other required forms) as early as possible. Colleges have a finite amount of money budgeted for financial aid. Students who file later risk receiving less aid as colleges approach their budget limits.
