All students, regardless of income level, who are planning to attend college must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid every year. This is the single most important form for helping students receive money to go to college. The FAFSA is required in order for students to be considered for government grants, scholarships and student loans.
The FAFSA must be filed by April 15 for students to be eligible for state financial aid.
To help families navigate the application process, financial aid experts will be providing assistance for college-bound students across Indiana from 2-4 p.m. on Oct. 28, during College Goal Sunday.
