The University of Florida would like to share important information regarding the FAFSA

 

The University of Florida would like to share our FAFSA Resources for High Schools.

 

The UF FAFSA Toolkit includes videos, FAQs, morning news scripts, links and other helpful information to assist high school counselors, teachers and administrators explain the financial aid process and inspire students to apply for financial aid for college.

Please visit the UF FAFSA Toolkit at http://www.sfa.ufl.edu/fafsa/

Completing the FAFSA is the first step toward getting financial aid for college or career school. The FAFSA not only gives students  access to the $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds that the federal government has available, but many states, schools, and private scholarships require you to submit the FAFSA before they will consider you for any financial aid they offer. That’s why it’s important that every college-bound student complete the FAFSA as soon as possible.
