Fill out your FAFSA form:
The new 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available online for college-bound students and parents to fill out.
While tax information from the previous year is required to complete the form, FAFSA allows families to provide an estimated figure until after their taxes are completed. According to Dr. Frank Mussano and Dr. Robert Iosue, authors of College Tuition: Four Decades of Financial Deception, it’s best to fill out the application as soon as possible after January 1 of the year the student plans to attend college in order to maximize their options for federal financial aid.
