FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)- the FAFSA is a form to be completed by students planning to go to college and their families, to determine their eligibility for Financial Aid.
The FAFSA is not something to be nervous or anxious about. It is actually a simple process of filling out an application based on your income information. Once submitted, the FAFSA will provide you with an EFC, or Expected Family Contribution. This is what the student's family can most likely provide towards their college expenses. This amount (EFC) is then taken from the Cost of Attendance (COA) to determine eligibility.
