What is FAFSA?
FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The government uses this form to determine your eligibility for financial aid, which includes: scholarships, grants, work study, and loans. Many colleges use FAFSA to apply for the HOPE Scholarship. Don’t assume you make too much to get federal financial aid. You may qualify even if you don’t think you do. You won’t know unless you apply.
FAFSA is FREE. You should not be charged any money to complete the form.
Items You Need:
☐ Social Security numbers and driver’s license (you and your parents)
☐ Current bank statements
☐ Current mortgage and investment records
☐ Current W-2 forms (you and your parents)
