Quick reminder, the 2012 Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid, or FAFSA, will be available January 1, 2012. Students who are hoping to receive federal financial aid for the Fall 2012 semester need to fill out the FAFSA to be eligible.
Filling out the FAFSA will mean you will have to coordinate with parents and guardians to get together tax information.
