FAFSA opens December 1st
Did you know that in order to be considered and eligible for merit aid, many universities require that you have a FAFSA on file? Even if you do not believe that your family income qualifies for need-based aid, it can qualify you for tuition reduction, grants, and merit-based aid. File your FAFSA no later than March 2nd, the earlier the better! The official government site, fafsa.gov.
