Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
One must complete and submit this application to apply for federal student aid and to apply for most state and college aid. (This includes the U.S. Department of Interior/Bureau of Indian Affairs Higher Education funding administered by Bristol Bay Native Association or potentially through other tribal organizations near where you reside).
Note: If you or your family has unusual or extenuating circumstances (such as loss of employment, etc.) consult with the financial aid officer at the college you plan to attend.
Be wary of organizations that charge a fee to submit your application to find you money for school. The help you pay for can be obtained for free from your school or from the U.S. Department of Education.
You may also complete the FAFSA on the web. A worksheet is available for you to complete prior to actually filing online. Visit http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ for more information.
