The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an application that all seniors and their parents who want to apply for federally funded financial aid programs must complete in order to gain access to the funds (federal grants and loans). It is important to complete the FAFSA because the information allows each college to have a full picture of how students will be paying for college and if added help is needed.
