What's this I Hear About a Free Application for Federal Student Aid?

by:
Are you struggling to get through school financially but not sure where to turn next? Have you exhausted loan options but are sick of paying large fees just to apply for the loan and being turned down anyway at the end? You will be glad to find out that that there are cost-free Federal Student Aid applications available to you.


To start discovering more you begin by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). A FASFA is an application for Federal Student Aid and is required for student aid, work-study, and or school grants. It can also be used for some additional private aid.


By visiting the FASFA website, you will be able to submit your free application for any institute of higher learning of your choosing. After sending out your application, you will receive a student aid report (SAR). This letter will arrive between 3-5 days with instructions on how to access your student aid report (SAR) online. If you prefer a direct copy of your SAR, it can be mailed to your home address provided in the application.
