All college bound students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There are some websites out there that may make you pay to do this or will complete it for you for a fee. We don't recommend doing that. FAFSA will open on October 1st for the 2022-2023 school year. You will need to have your FSA ID before you can complete FAFSA.

This information will go directly to the college, university or technical college that you selected. You will receive an Award Letter from those educational institutions.
