What is FAFSA?


 The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the official form that students and their families use to apply for financial assistance for college from the federal government.

Attention: The FAFSA form is being updated, and the deadline to fill it out has been delayed. The FAFSA form for the 2024-25 school year is expected to be available in December 2023.

Remember, this is a super important step to finding out what financial aid, scholarships, and grants you qualify for! Be prepared when the new deadline rolls around:

1. Read up on FAFSA changes 
2. Create FSA ID

Reach out to Niagara’s Financial Aid department with any questions.
