FEDERAL FINANCIAL AIDcan be awarded by the government and by the institution of higher learning that you attend. The amount of financial aid offered is based on need and can come in the form of grants or loans. The FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid) can be filled out starting October 1 (this is a change for students entering college beginning in 2017-18)of the senior year.
