  • The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. EVERYONE should fill out the FAFSA, even students who do not believe they will qualify for aid.

The FAFSA is required to work on campus (work-study job) and students may qualify for low interest loans even if they don’t qualify for grants.
