NEW--Students can file their 2018-2019 FAFSA beginning October 1, 2017, using 2016 income information. This change began in the fall of 2016. 

 

The FAFSA is the application that college and career school students must complete to determine eligibility for federal student aid.  In addition, many scholarships require that students complete FAFSA.   To learn more, visit  https://fafsa.ed.gov/
