What is the FAFSA?

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the form you fill out before each year of college, to apply for federal grants, work-study, and loans. Many states and colleges use your FAFSA data (parental income) to determine your federal aid eligibility and to award aid.
