Time to File Your FAFSA!

Seniors ‑ as you finish up applying to colleges ‑ mark your calendars to apply for federal financial aid by filing the 2016‑2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after January 1, 2016.

The Center for College Planning is pleased to help students and their families file the FAFSA either in our Concord office or at many high schools across the state. Call our us at 888.7.GRADUATE, x119 to book a FAFSA filing appointment in Concord and be sure to check with your school guidance office to see if we will be filing FAFSAs at your school.

With January 1 right around the corner, now is a great time for students and parents to prepare for filing the FAFSA by applying for an FSA ID. An FSA ID will provide access to the Federal Student Aid's online systems and will serve as your legal signature for your FAFSA as well as any federal student loan applications. For tips on setting up your FSA ID, click here.

And, if you didn't get to see the Financial Aid Night presentation at your high school, you can watch it anytime on our NHHEAF YouTube channel!
