Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The FAFSA is a federal form a student must complete to qualify for most student financial aid. A FAFSA must be submitted if a student wants to apply for state and federal financial aid. A new FAFSA must be submitted every award year.
A verification process is used to ensure the accuracy of the information provided by students and parents on the FAFSA. The educational institPCTIon may contact the student to submit additional supporting documentation (e.g. Federal Tax Forms, Verification Worksheet).
