The Early Bird Gets The Worm: Financial Aid 101

The Early Bird Gets The Worm: Financial Aid 101
January 22, 2015 Brian Safdari

Early Bird - Financial AidHere are the top mistakes when filling out the FAFSA:

FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid

  • Not applying because families “THINK” they won’t qualify
  • Having 1 letter or number wrong on your name, address, or Social Security Number
  • Sending in the FAFSA late (PRIORITY DATE VARIES BY SCHOOL)
  • Waiting until your 2014 tax returns are filed to complete the FAFSA
  • Not having enough time to file correctly
  • Going to the wrong website for the FAFSA

I want to remind all local and national families that have a high school senior or transfer student heading to college this coming fall to apply for financial aid NOW. We personally hand hold all income-level families through the college admissions & financial aid process and believe me, there is financial aid for all income level families.

APPLY HERE: FAFSA.gov

Financial aid is on a first come first serve basis. Here is a worksheet for more information to help you fill out your FAFSA:
