who we help
A FAFSA determines if your child is eligible for money from the federal government that can be used towards his or her education. This could include a federal Pell Grant (money that does not require any repayment), work-study jobs and/or loans.
Who is Eligible for Federal Aid?
Your child must meet certain basic criteria in order to receive federal money. The criteria includes items related to U.S. citizenship, financial need, readiness for college, registering for the national selective service (males age 18-25), and more.
It’s important to fill out a FAFSA each year your child is in college or career school, even if you think that your family won’t qualify for federal aid. You might qualify, and the information from the FAFSA may be used by schools and the state to determine whether your child qualifies for additional money.
