Beginning October 1, the families of seniors can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Air at www.fafsa.ed.gov
Through this site, the FAFSA information can be submitted directly to the Department of Education’s Central Processing System.
In addition to the FAFSA, the CSS Profile is required by some colleges– usually the highly selective private institutions. The Profile is available online at https://cssprofile.collegeboard.org/
The U.S. Department of Education provides several sources of information. The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) is also a good resource for further guidance.
