Getting financial aid for college is almost like winning the lottery. My FAFSA Assistant is here to guide you the strenuous process for applying for Federal Aid. This consists of making sure you have the right forms, you meet all the deadlines, finding about college costs and so on. Once you make you your mind to go to college, the next step is to figure out how to pay for it. Most students apply for financial assistance if they don’t have a college fund set up. Getting a financial aid helps you out by reducing the student loan you might have otherwise had to take on. Student loans are a tricky slope and get overburdening if you don’t land a job as soon as you graduate.
All About FAFSA
FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid is used by federal governments, the state and colleges to award grants, student scholarships, work study as well as student loans. Although the grants and scholarships are completely free, the work study money has to be paid back by the student after they graduate. My FAFSA Assistant will alert you when the FAFSA forms are available to make sure you do not miss out on applying. Since last year the forms are available in October for the next academic year. This helps streamline the process of college application and applying for financial aid.
