We’re almost there, students. FAFSA® opens on October 1st!
If you’re not ready for it, we’ve rounded up some of this week’s best advice (after all our advice, obviously). Rather than give you all the information upfront, we’re going to let you read it yourself.
Why? Because the best way to learn about FAFSA® is to get as much info about the application and process as possible. And reading = processing.
But in short, here’s what you really need to do to get ready to fill out the application — be prepared, have your documents ready, and ask questions if you need to.
