FAFSA: The new FAFSA form will open in December 2023! The Free Application for Federal Student Aid form is the application for federal financial aid for college and post-secondary training. It may also help you qualify for financial aid from the state of Ohio and at the institution of your choice. By filling this application out you’ll see what you qualify for. You may qualify for grants, which you do not need to repay. If you qualify for loans, federal loans have lower interest rates and you don’t start repaying until your student graduates.
Common Questions about FAFSA:
Can I apply for FAFSA if I am going to a trade school? YES!
Should I complete the FAFSA if I haven’t been accepted to college yet? YES!
Should I apply even if I already have a plan to pay for school? YES!
-Early Action: Most schools offer early action deadlines, which entail applying early and receiving an early admission decision. This is a great option for those who want an early admission decision without having to commit to a school. Early action does not require you to commit to attending the school should you get admitted.
-Early Decision: Similar to early action, early decision means applying to a college and getting an admission decision around mid-December. This comes with a binding agreement to enroll. If you get in, you must pay a nonrefundable deposit and immediately withdraw all of your other college applications. This is why students applying early decision should be completely set on attending a particular school.
-Regular Decision Deadline: These deadlines commonly fall in January or February but each school could be different.
