File FAFSA® First
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA®, is the first and most important step when searching for financial aid for college.
The FAFSA® application determines a student’s eligibility for both federal and some state grants, work-study programs, federal student loans, and even some school-sponsored scholarships.
Some states require FAFSA® completion before applying for state financial aid.
What is State Aid?
Almost every state education agency has at least one grant or scholarship available to residents, and many have a long list of student aid programs. Eligibility is usually restricted to state residents attending a college in-state, but that’s not always the case.
