FAFSA News and Tips from the US Dept of Education

The new FAFSA for the 2013-14 school year became available January 1st — the deadline is March 2nd but we suggest that students complete it as soon as possible. You’ll need your Federal Student Aid PIN to complete the FAFSA electronically. If you don’t have a PIN, apply for one today at www.pin.ed.gov. Lost your PIN? Request a duplicate: http://1.usa.gov/VMHpIa.

Check our schedule of Financial Aid workshops open to the public if you want to learn more.

Watch the two videos below for information about how to fill out the FAFSA (top), and what happens AFTER you fill it out (bottom).
