The Free Applicaton for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA), required by most colleges, will now be available online on October 1. For a link to the online FAFSA click here. Students and their parents will complete this year's FAFSA (for the 2023-2024 college school year) using income and tax return information from the 2021 tax year. Seniors, if you want to maximize your chance to receive financial aid at a college, complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 and request that it be sent to the colleges on your wish list.
