Need help completing the FAFSA, otherwise known as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid?
I can sympathize with you. I’m filing out the FAFSA application myself this year and some of the schools that my son Ben is applying to have financial aid deadlines as early as Feb. 1.
If you’re struggling with the FAFSA form or CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE, you don’t have to pay someone to get answers. Today I’m sharing three free FAFSA resources that can help:
Federal Student Aid Information Center. If you have FAFSA questions, you can get answers direct from the FAFSA folks. You can contact the federal FAFSA office by telephone or email. You can also receive FAFSA online assistance by hitting the “Live Help” button located on the online FAFSA form.
TuitionCoach. This financial aid website is hosting free FAFSA Webinars this month, which can help answer your financial aid questions. You can find the list of dates and times for the financial aid Webinars on TuitionCoach’s website.
College Goal Sunday. During the month of January, this ambitious volunteer program holds financial aid help sessions in states across the country. You can find programs in your state by visiting College Goal Sunday’s website.
