Seniors: FAFSA Filing Season Is Here!

Don't wait until your 2014 taxes are done to file your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Make sure you complete the form by the earliest deadline of the colleges you are applying to in order to maximize your opportunities for grants and scholarships. You can use 2013 tax information or estimate based on your 2014 W-2 information. Once your 2014 taxes are complete, you will need to update your FAFSA.
