Online FAFSA Support Resources

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA

Paying for school is one of the biggest challenges all students (and their parents) face. We’ve explained that athletic scholarships  don’t pay for everything  and of course, not every good ballplayer  gets a scholarship offer. No matter how you plan to pay for school, there are forms to fill out so that you’ll be ready for opportunities that might come up. With the FAFSA’s applications opening in less than a month, it’s important to get informed and organized now!  

Here are some online resources that can make the forms easier to understand and best of all, they are all free!
