The FAFSA is your gateway to getting the financial assistance you need to complete your college degree.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opens every Oct. 1. Be sure to apply early in order to ensure prompt processing. Besides student loans, the FAFSA can also qualify you for scholarships and grants.

It doesn't cost anything to fill out a FAFSA, and usually takes less than an hour to complete.
