Students should be in the process of filling out the FAFSA if they are planning on attending any kind of college next year. Applications are on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. These should be completed no later than February 15th in order to give you the best chance of obtaining financial aid. College Bound Scholars must have the FAFSA completed by Oct. 1, 2016.
The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is need-based federal aid, coming in the forms of grants, work-study programs, and student loans. Many private schools distribute financial aid on a "need-blind" basis, providing whatever aid is needed to enroll a student. Attached here are instructions for completing the FAFSA.

Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, ensures that all eligible individuals can benefit from federally funded or federally guaranteed financial assistance for education beyond high school. We consistently champion the promise of postsecondary education to all Americans—and its value to our society.
Federal Student Aid plays a central and essential role in supporting postsecondary education by providing money for college to eligible students and families. We partner with postsecondary schools, financial institutions and other participants in the Title IV student financial assistance programs to deliver services that help students and families who are paying for college.
