College Scholarship Tip Friday: FAFSA – Just Do It!
Many parents wonder if they should bother filing the FAFSA if they don’t expect to receive any federal aid. The answer is YES!
The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the most important part of getting any state or federal financial aid.
Many scholarship providers want to know if the applicant has submitted their FAFSA paperwork, so always ALWAYS do the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1st each year, beginning with a student’s senior year of high school and every year while in college.
No matter what the parents’ income level is, a FAFSA should be filled out and submitted as early as possible, as many grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
FAFSA: Just Do It!
