In assisting your child with the college application process there is much to consider. As part of this process, you need to assist your child in filling out the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available as of October 1st and is to be completed by the student who will need assistance and documentation from you.
Completing the FAFSA is the first step to securing the possibility of receiving grants, scholarships, or student loans once you apply to a college or university. Aid can be awarded by some schools on a first come, first served basis, so it is important that your FAFSA information is on record with the schools either before or soon after your student applies. For specific due dates, please consult the individual college/university to which your child is applying.
