You’ve probably had a barrage of communications already, but I’m going to use my little bloggy platform to remind you about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You probably know it by its catchier nickname, FAFSA. Other than your degree finalization request, which I blogged about in December, the FAFSA may be the most important form you fill out during your college career.
More than 75 percent of degree-seeking NLU students receive some form of financial aid to help pay for their education, and the FAFSA is the basis for all of it. If you plan to take classes in summer 2014 or anytime during the 2014-2015 school year, fill out your FAFSA now! Yes, I’m exclaiming at you! I might even resort to SHOUTY ALL CAPS. It’s that important.
