The first week of school is usually exciting! For those who are lucky, there is a limited amount of homework and time to catch up with friends about their summer adventures. Also, there is time to explore what’s new on campus while attending events with free food. It may seem like the difficult part of college with tests and quizzes is in the distant future.
As demands increase in the coming weeks, keep in mind that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Application (FAFSA) can be submitted as early as Saturday, October 1, 2016 for the 2017-2018 academic year. This early financial aid option provides families and students with a means to determine their costs for various institutions to make a knowledgeable decision.
Mark your calendar and submit the FAFSA early!
