January is the start of a New Year and a new semester, which means you have the unique advantage of a fresh start in more than one way! How cool is that? Make sure you utilize this clean slate because it's not often that we're given such chances in life.The FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is an important component of your college search and became available on October 1, 2022. It’s important to fill it out as soon as it becomes available because it not only determines whether or not you qualify for federal aid, but also for certain types of state financial aid. Bonus: Your parents can use their 2021 tax income returns. The sooner you fill out your FAFSA the better chances at earning state aid, before funds become limited. Learn more about filling out the FAFSA and, remember, it’s always free to fill out – so if you’re being charged to fill out the form, it’s not legitimate. The only correct FAFSA website to access the FAFSA is studentaid.gov.
