Each winter, students across the country begin the process of applying for financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. Throughout the month of February, the higher education community, including NASFAA, celebrates Financial Aid Awareness Month, in an effort to provide crucial information to students and families about access to federal, state, and institutional student aid.
This Week’s Topic: Filing the FAFSA
To kick off Financial Aid Awareness Month, we’re taking your questions about filling out the FAFSA, the application that acts as a gateway to billions of dollars in federal student aid. Send us your questions on Twitter using the hashtag #FinAidFeb, and get tips and advice on common mistakes to avoid when filling out the FAFSA. Keep in mind that applying for financial aid is free and can help you pay for a school you might have thought was out of reach. Join us this week for our Twitter Chats:
