The hardest part of college shouldn’t be paying for it. You could be eligible for thousands of dollars in financial aid to help pay for it. Students and their families are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a critical application produced by the U.S. Department of Education. Completing the FAFSA can qualify you for grants, loans, work-study programs, and, in many cases, private scholarships.
