SIX MYTHS OF APPLYING FOR FAFSA

(FINANCIAL AIDE)

 

  1. I WIIL NOT QUALIFY BEACUSE MY PARENTS MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY. Actually, there isn't an income cut off to qualify for financial aid.

     

  2. I DON'T GET GOOD GRADES, SO I WON'T BE ELIGIBLE FOR FINANCAIL AID. Most federal student aid programs don't take your grades into consideration when you apply.

     

  3. THE APPLICATION IS TOO HARD TO FILL OUT! Since the application is online, the FAFSA is easy to complete. Answer the questions that are relevant to you. If you have filed your taxes, you can transfer your tax return data into your FAFSA automatically. There will be guided assistance in the margins to help you answer each question. The FAFSA has a HELP page.

     

  4. I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY PARENTS FILE TAXES. Since some colleges have FAFSA deadlines, it is important to complete the FAFSA early. You can log in and update the information.

     

  5. I SUPPORT MYSELF, SO I DON'T HAVE PARENT INFO. Even if you support and file taxes on your own, you may still be a dependent for federal student aid purposes. Answer the questions on the FAFSA form.

     

  6. IF I COMPLETE THE FAFSA FORM ONCE, I DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE IT AGAIN. You should complete the form every year that you plan to attend college.
