The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required by most two- and four-year colleges for students to receive financial aid for the 2013-2014 school year.
The 2013-2014 FAFSA form opens on January 1, 2014. Many colleges have a priority filing date of February 15 or March 1, so students are urged to complete this form as soon as possible after January 1 to maximize their chances of receiving aid.
For more information, visit www.fafsa.gov.
College Access Fairfax will be hosting Free FAFSA Completion Workshops throughout Fairfax County. These workshops allow families to bring their required paperwork and receive assistance in filing the form online.
For more information on these events, visit the College Access Fairfax website at: www.collegeaccessfairfax.org.
