If you’re worried about paying for college, you are NOT alone!
One of the best ways to make college affordable is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is renewable and unlocks different types
of financial aid.
By completing this form, you may be awarded a Pell Grant, which is free cash in your pocket that does not need to be repaid!

Some of the aid you might qualify for is first-come, first-served, which means it can run out if you wait too long to apply.
If you need help with any part of the process, you can reach out to your school counselor or visit Federal Student Aid’s Help Center, which offers support via phone or live chat.
