Here's How to Create Your FSA ID

 

It's Time to Apply for Financial Aid!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the most important step in the financial aid process and is a must for EVERY college student!  The federal and state government and most colleges require that you submit a FAFSA to determine your eligibility for financial aid. The FAFSA filing period is October 1 - March 2. You can find the FAFSA application here. You can find a helpful FAFSA worksheet here.   Fund Your Future magazine, a publication that provides information about California aid such as Cal Grants, can be accessed here.
