Filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is an extremely important part of the college application process. This paperwork helps the U.S. Department of Education connect about 15 million upcoming college students with over $150 billion in education funding. This money is provided to students in the form of grants, loans, and federal work-study opportunities. Find out more here: Understanding the FAFSA
