Elizabeth Fleming talked about FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Here are a few key points:
- Most jobs in Alabama require some level of education post high school and nationally, 9 out of 10 students who complete FAFSA go to college in the fall
- Many schools look at FAFSA for merit and needs based scholarships
-If your family makes less than $250,000 a year you are encouraged to complete (for loans and scholarship opportunities). No income limit - each
- Earliest and most common deadline in Alabama is March 1st, but we encourage you to start the process and finish early.
