- What is the FAFSA?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (known as the FAFSA) is a form is prepared annually by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid. This is used to determine eligibility for grants and loans. All colleges/universities require this process to be completed. This is time sensitive - money is awarded on a first-come-first serve basis, hence the urgency in completing this as soon as possible.
