The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form used by the U.S. Department of Education to determine your Expected Family Contribution by conducting a “need analysis” based on financial information, such as income, assets and other household information, which you will be asked to provide. The FAFSA is a free application. Please avoid any website that charges you to fill out the FAFSA. The FAFSA will need to be completed by nearly all students attending college. More often than not, even students receiving scholarships will need to fill out the FAFSA.
