Correct FAFSA Website

FAFSA Website Tip

PLEASE be sure that when you complete the FAFSA you go to the correct fafsa website to do so ~ the link is below. There is only one Official FAFSA Website! You should go to the Federal Student Aid site at  www.fafsa.ed.gov. This is important to note, as there are other sites out there in the “dot com” online world that charge for FAFSA completion. If you search Google for “FAFSA,” you will encounter these other sites due to paid advertising efforts. There is only one official site for completing the FAFSA – it is free and associated with the U.S. Department of Education. Consumers do not need to pay to complete the FAFSA. Although it does take some time to file the FAFSA, you can do it yourself, as long as you reserve some time, remain patient and focused, and have your financial records handy to assist you. Remember … www.FAFSA.ed.gov is where you want to be!

If you do need assistance filing the FAFSA, you can refer to the FAFSA website above, one of the many articles on this site, or take advantage of the College Goal Sunday events that are held each year! For details on this program, check out the article on College Goal Sunday. Remember, there is only one correct fafsa website!
