Financial Aid for College: Many State Applications Are Due Soon
The federal government offers more than $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds to students each year. To see if you qualify for aid, you must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly called the FAFSA.
Many states and colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid.
Check the application deadlines for your state. Many state deadlines occur in early 2014. Also check the deadlines for your college.
