It’s FAFSA time! As your student prepares for college (or has transitioned into an upperclassman), they can now fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, for the upcoming school year. October 1st is when the new period opened to apply or renew.
Even if your student won’t require help from the government, filling out a FAFSA is still a good exercise that can contribute to a wise college payment strategy.
To fill out the FAFSA, just go to studentaid.gov. It should only take about an hour, but it could mean big savings for you in the long run.
Best of luck to you and your student.
