What is the FAFSA?

The office of Federal Student Aid provides more than $150 billion in federal grants, loans, and work-study funds each year to students paying for college or career schools.

Apply starting October 1st. of your senior year. Be sure to fill out the application for the year that you plan to attend college.  Apply early to get the maximum aid for your family's income

It is free to file the FAFSA.  If the site asks for payment you are not in the right place.  Make sure the address ends in gov.       www.fafsa.gov

FAFSA application deadlines vary by school so be sure to check their deadlines.

Federal Deadline: Online applications must be submitted by June 30, 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year to get the best financial aid package.

You can schedule an individual Zoon appointment with FAMEMaine if you need help with your FAFSA. Go to FAMEmaine.com/contact under financial aid coaching.
