Federal Financial Aid: FAFSA Deadlines, Tips and Advice


If you’re preparing to file the FAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and you find yourself overwhelmed, you’re not alone. Even if you’ve filed the FAFSA before, things like changes to the application, or changes to your living situation can make answering some of the questions rather confusing. Like many forms for college, completing the FAFSA can seem daunting. We’re here to help by eliminating the guesswork.

FASFA Deadlines, FAQs, and More 

Our parent company, Edvisors, has released their yearly Filing the FAFSA Guide for 2019-2020, a free PDF download that provides filing tips and answers to frequently asked questions like:

  • How do I file without my parent’s help?
  • Which parent’s information do I use?
  • What are the important FAFSA deadlines?
  • What are common FAFSA mistakes?
  • How do I make changes to the FAFSA?
  • …and so much more!

Why you should file the FAFSA 

Filing the FAFSA is the only way to apply for federal grants, scholarships, and loans to help pay for college, which is why it’s important to file as soon as possible when it’s released every year on October 1. Plus, the earlier you file, the more aid you’re eligible to receive!
