Student Loans & FAFSA

What’s the FAFSA and why is it important?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (or FAFSA) is the online form you must complete each year to access federal aid (including federal student loans). In addition to helping you access federal aid, many states and individual colleges also use the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for state and school aid. While you aren’t technically required to complete the FAFSA in order to apply for a private student loan, it’s always best to exhaust your federal, state and school aid before you take a private loan.
