3 Resources to Help Your Students with the FAFSA

September 13, 2017


Last year we linked to three resources to help your students prepare to submit their FAFSAs. With the FAFSA submission date approaching faster than you can say, “Wait, it’s already September?,” we think it’s a good time to bring those resources back to your attention. Here again are three resources that will help your students fill out the FAFSA, estimate their federal student aid, and understand what happens once they have submitted their FAFSAs.

For students unsure of what documents they will need or clueless when it comes to their dependency status, FSA has them covered. Through their website, they offer a variety of good tips for filling out the FAFSA. FSA’s online library is intuitive, easy to search, and can help relieve the headaches than can accompany filling out the FAFSA.

Students can estimate their federal student aid with FAFSA4caster. This free online calculator is recommended for any student who is not ready to file a FAFSA – from middle school students to adults. FAFSA4caster uses the student’s answers to a variety of financial and other questions to estimate federal student aid eligibility.

What happens once a student submits his or her FAFSA? We offer answers through our infographic “The Life of a Student Loan.” Available through our library, the infographic illustrates the student loan process, from planning for college to post-college and beyond.

The FAFSA submission date is approaching quickly and we’re always ready to help. If you have any questions about the process – or anything else for that matter – please reach out to us.
