Students love Frank

I couldn’t believe something like a FAFSA® could be done in such a short time! Boy, was I wrong! It was quick, easy, and helped me get into my college of choice as well as pick a lot of other opportunities based on my choices!

Being a single mom, I knew paying for school wouldn’t be easy so I signed up for financial aid. I was thinking, “When will I have the time to fill out an application??” But with Frank it was easy!! They helped me every step of the way.

In helping my son prepare his information for the FAFSA® application, we were extremely fortunate to come across Frank. The service makes the FAFSA® application process a snap.
