Federal student financial aid is the best place to start seeking money for college or career training.  Federal student aid comes from the federal government – specifically, the U.S. Department of Education. It’s money that helps pay for higher education expenses (i.e. college, career school, or graduate school expenses). Federal student aid covers such expenses as tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the most important application for getting federal assistance and the only way to get access to federal student loans, grants and work-study programs. Submit your FAFSA application as early as possible, some aid is awarded on a first come, first served basis.

For the upcoming FAFSA Application, students will be required to report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2021–22 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2019 income and tax information. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the best way to import your tax info into the FAFSA.

Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation

If your or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then contact the school you plan to attend to discuss how your current financial situation has changed. Note that the school's decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education.

Many universities also offer work-study programs to help students finance college while working part-time.
