The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is an important part of preparing for college. This form serves as your application for all types of federal and most state financial aid. High school seniors should complete the FAFSA in October of their senior year and then each year thereafter to request funding for their college education.
Understanding the FAFSA, however, can be challenging. To assist students, parents, and others completing this form, check out our new FAFSA Learning Modules. We’ve assembled five modules on the following topics.
- Module One: Gather Your Information
- Module Two: Create an FSA ID
- Module Three: Complete Your FAFSA
- Module Four: Sign and Submit
- Module Five: Follow Up
These short PowerPoint modules offer detailed information on completing the FAFSA from start to finish. Links are also provided for users to find additional information, publications and resources to assist them in completing the FAFSA.
You’ll find the FAFSA Learning Modules and other helpful tools on financial aid for college on the resources page.
