February is Financial Aid Awareness Month

Filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to qualify for financial aid is a winning move for all college students.

The FAFSA is the first step toward success in college. Students who file the FAFSA by their school’s priority deadline receive priority consideration for financial aid from the school as well as from the state and federal government.

The FAFSA qualifies college students for:

  • Grants
  • Scholarships
  • Work-study
  • Federal student loans.

Students must complete a FAFSA for each year of school they attend. If the FAFSA is completed online, answers from the previous year remain completed in the form and can be updated as needed before submitting the newest form.

Visit your college’s website or financial aid office for more information. You can also learn more about FAFSA at
