Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Federal Student Aid is responsible for managing the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.

These programs provide grants, loans, and work-study funds to students attending college or career school. The FAFSA is the abbreviation for the application that is completed and used in determining aid. Almost all colleges require students to complete the FAFSA before being considered for ANY type of scholarship and/or aid. In the simplest terms, it is used to determine how much student aid you qualify for based on your family’s financial situation.
