What is the FAFSA?
- Free Application for Student Aid - Determines student financial aid
- Students receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) - tells you what is your Need-Based Aid eligibility
- An ISIR (electronic copy of SAR) is made available to colleges/universities as well as state agencies that provide need-based aid
- If you don't qualify for Need-Based aid, most students qualify for unsubsidized Stafford Loans
- Grants vs Loans - Grants - financial aid you qualify for based on need and are NOT paid back. Loans - financial aid for students to attend college but ARE paid back
