To qualify for any financial aid, you must fill out the FAFSA!
This form opens the door to all financial aid, from need based scholarships, merit based, or anything in between. Even if you think you don’t qualify, you should still fill it out. Especially for private schools as there is more need based aid available. This form will ask for income and assets, so get your FAFSA Pin, and be prepared with your information to fill it out ahead of time. Not sure how to fill it out, or want to see if there are ways to lower your Effective Family Contribution? Send us an email through our contact box and ask for a free consultation with a licensed financial adviser.
NOTE: The FAFSA and CSS Profile for the school year 2018-2019 will not come out until January 2018.
Some schools, most notable private schools, may require the CSS, a supplement to the FAFSA. This will ask for other assets and income not asked for on the FAFSA.
