The FAFSA and Other Financial Aid Applications

graduation23sThe FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and it’s a very important part of your preparation for college. This is the form that needs to be filled out before you can qualify for any federal or state student aid. Not only does it need to be filled out, it needs to be filled out correctly.

The financial aid information provided on the form will automatically be sent to the school(s) listed on the FAFSA and to KHEAA.

The best way to obtain and file the FAFSA is online. You can use your library, high school, or home computer to apply for federal student aid via FAFSA on the Web (an interactive Web page).

You can complete a FAFSA online and send your data over the Internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. A brochure titled FAFSA on the Web is available from the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) by calling (800) 4FED-AID ([800] 433-3243).

The computer you use must have one of the following browsers: Netscape Navigator 4.76 or higher, MS Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher, or AOL 5.0 or higher. If you have any questions about FAFSA on the Web, call (800) 4FED-AID.
