New college students and those returning for the 2019-2020 school year can now fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form from their smartphones.
The My Student Aid app can be used to complete the FAFSA or check federal student aid history. Not only is this convenient, but it is also beneficial to those who may rely on their phones for internet access.
The FAFSA is a form that needs to be filed annually to determine financial aid eligibility for college students and those planning to attend school. Regardless of income level, every college student should file a FAFSA each year. The deadline for filing for the 2019-2020 academic year is April 15, 2019.
The FAFSA can also be filled out online at www.fafsa.gov. If you need assistance submitting the application, call 1-800-4FED-AID.
