Get Free One-on-One Help with the FAFSA
What is the FAFSA?
- The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is required for government grants and many scholarships. All students who are going to college or trade school should fill it out.
Why complete it?
- The FAFSA is the first step for college funding of all kinds, including merit and athletic scholarships. Every student should complete one, even if you think you won’t qualify for aid..
What if my grades aren’t good enough?
- Grades aren’t taken into consideration for federal aid. You should still complete the FAFSA!
My family income is too high.
- You might be surprised. There are many college funding programs out there, and they all have different requirements. But nearly all of them will require the FAFSA to be completed.
The FAFSA is the first step to college or trade school. Sign up for any of our free workshops, webinars, or one-on-one sessions to take the first step!

FAFSA Opens door for Students. The FAFSA determines students’ ability to pay for their education, and thus their eligibility for federal, state and institutions grants, loans and work study opportunities. You should fill it out even if you think your grades aren’t good enough (grades are NOT taken into account for federal aid) or your family income is too high (you may be surprised).
