Stu­dents need to file fi­nan­cial aid form

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NEWS -

Stu­dents who plan to at­tend col­lege next fall should file the Free Ap­pli­ca­tion of Fed­eral Stu­dent Aid as soon as pos­si­ble. The fed­eral dead­line to file the FAFSA is June 30, but stu­dents who de­lay can miss out on money from the state or the col­lege they plan to at­tend.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are pro­cessed and the re­sults are sent to the col­leges listed on the form. The FAFSA serves as the ap­pli­ca­tion for most of the fi­nan­cial aid from fed­eral and state pro­grams and from col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties.

Cur­rent stu­dents also need to fill out the form be­cause it must be sub­mit­ted each year.

The quick­est and most ac­cu­rate way to file is on­line at FAFSA. ed.gov. The on­line form dis­plays only the data en­try fields stu­dents need to com­plete and gives di­rec­tions as they are needed. The FAFSA site is also avail­able in Span­ish.
