FAFSA

To apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free. It gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school. In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA information to determine your eligibility for state and school aid. Get started now at https://fafsa.ed.gov

Each October, the FAFSA is available for the next school year. It's important for seniors and their parents to fill it out as soon as possible to meet school and state financial aid deadlines. The deadline for the state of California is March 2 each year.
