Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA)

 

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is the first step toward getting federal aid for college, career school, or graduate school.  The federal government provides more than $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds each year, but you have to complete the FAFSA to see if you can get any of that money.

To apply for federal student aid, you need to complete the FAFSA® or Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and quick, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.  In addition, the Kansas state government and colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid.


If you’re ready to fill out the FAFSA now, go for it!  If you’d like more information or help getting the FAFSA done, we can help.  Visit the WHS College & Career Center in room 125 or attend one of the following FAFSA days:
