It is once again time to prepare for college financial aid if your student is graduating from high school in May. Beginning this month, you can file the Free Application for Student Aid, and the sooner you have your 2013 tax return, the better.
You also will need to set up a user ID and pin number.
Please make sure you are on the FAFSA.gov website. There is no charge. If you mistakenly get on a similar site, they will try to charge you for their services.
Your information will be sent directly to the individual schools listed on your application. Even if you don’t qualify for grants or scholarships that don’t have to be repaid, you can still receive low-interest student and parent loans to help offset the cost of higher education.
