FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid form
October 1, the FAFSA form opens up for seniors and their families to begin completing. Financial Aid money is awarded based on merit and/or need and is typically distributed quickly, so the sooner you submit your paperwork, the more likely you are to be awarded a good financial aid package. 

Additionally, many universities use your FAFSA information to determine if you qualify for the aid the university is distributing. January 15 is the priority deadline for many universities and is when the first round of awards are determined. Check with the universities are you are applying to in order to ensure you are not missing out on the priority deadline. 

In order to complete the FAFSA formstudents and parents will need to create a FSA ID.  Students and parents will need separate usernames, passwords, and email addresses.
