What is the FAFSA

FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (fafsa.gov). FAFSA is a program under Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education. It is used to apply for federal student financial aid, such as the Pell Grant, student loans, and college work-study.

Should I Apply
