FAFSA doors opened October 1. Should you apply for financial aid?

Should you apply for financial aid even if you don’t think your family will qualify?

Generally, yes. No matter how high your income or asset base is, your family should apply for financial aid as early as possible. At the very least this means filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

You can begin filing these forms now for the 2018-2019 school year even though you may not know the choice of college.  The application process began October 1st.  Learn more about this financial aid form by reading this FAFSA handout.
