To apply for student financial aid, you must first complete the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA).
Three things to keep in mind about FAFSA deadlines:
- There is a Federal deadline.
- There are different State deadlines. Check the FAFSA website, enter your state of residence, and year for which you wish to apply for student aid.
- There may be different college deadlines. Check the colleges you plan to attend about their specific deadlines and requirements.
