Are you ready to make some real money moves?

A mistake on the FAFSA can lead to a lot of frustration and can result in you missing out on much needed financial aid. Save yourself the headache and get your FAFSA questions answered before you apply. 

Here are 3 FAFSA resources to keep in mind: 

U.S. Department of Education 

Go straight to the source. The U.S. Department of Education creates the FAFSA, so they are the best place for help with your application. 

You can call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800- 4-FED-AID (1-800- 433 - 3243) or you can chat live with a counselor from your computer, tablet, or cell phone.

Your School 

Whether you are in high school or college, your school will have resources to help you understand how to complete this important college document. In high school, guidance

counselors may provide help or point you in the right direction. Many high schools now

host FAFSA nights that you and your parents can attend. 

In college, your financial aid officer can answer major questions about completing the 

FAFSA correctly. Your Financial Aid office may also host informational events or let you

schedule appointments to fill out your FAFSA application. 

Community Organizations 

Nonprofits and community organizations are starting to help students handle their FAFSA applications. Some organizations even host FAFSA completion events where you can get a counselor to work one-on-one with you to get the application done. Check out the United Way in your area. Many United Way branches across the country are hosting FAFSA workshops.
