FAFSA Free Application for Federal Student Aid, US Dept of Education:  www.fafsa.ed.gov
The FAFSA website is a first step in the financial aid process.  Three years ago there were new changes to the FAFSA. In past years students could not submit a FAFSA until January 1st.  Beginning two years ago, students can submit a FAFSA on October 1 rather than January 1 of the new year. Therefore, seniors can begin their FAFSA on October 1, 2022.  More information is provided on this website in addition to the introduction to financial aid link below.
