Need help with your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)? Well, we’re here to help!
We now offer free consultations to help guide you on completing your FAFSA and answer your questions. The FAFSA Help Team is available Monday- Friday from 1 pm – 4 pm. Consultations need to be requested 2 business days in advance. Each meeting is 30 minutes long unless more time is determined to be needed by our team. If you are running late, please be advised that after 10 minutes we will request for you to reschedule. If you have to make a consultation request outside of business hours, you may do so, but please explain why on the notes section at the bottom of the form.
