Fill out your FAFSA
Open October 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019.
Why fill out a FAFSA
Any student who plans to or might possibly attend some kind of college should submit the FAFSA: Free Application for Federal Student Aid between October 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019
- Helps determine eligibility for federal loans, grants or work-study programs.
- Many colleges require it to be on file for their own need-based or merit-based aid packages.
- Many scholarships require you to have filled out a FAFSA.
- Some colleges even set aside money specifically for students who did not qualify for federal aid.
- Some financial aid is first come, first serve. This is why you want to fill it out as early as you can.
- Some colleges also have earlier deadlines for the FAFSA than June 30, 2019.
The Idaho State Board of Education has launched a new online resource, Next Steps Idaho is aimed at students and parents of students exploring options for life after high school. Next Steps is an important part of the go-on equation for Idaho. It provides a wide range of clear, easy-to-digest information, all in one, easy-to-access place. The information is specific to Idaho and helps counter some of the obstacles Idaho students face when considering post secondary college and career training. It targets students from 8th grade to 12th grade.
