Finally, Affordable Help with How to Fill Out the FAFSA: My FAFSA Assistant!

January 16th, 2008 admin


Who else hates spending hours on the FAFSA every year, just to try to get some financial aid?!? I always dread it (especially since my mom always made me do it all by myself!).

In case you haven’t heard of it, the “FAFSA” is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the form you have to fill out to qualify for federal grants, some scholarships, work-study, and federal student loans.

Well, a new tool called My FAFSA Assistant could end all this needless suffering! It includes step-by-step video tutorials that help you gather all the documents you need, AND it walks you through the entire FAFSA filing process. It even tells you what information belongs where (since it’s a government form, the FAFSA questions can be tricky!) and how to handle special situations, like what to do if you qualify as an independent student, or if you come from a divorced family.

One of the best parts is that you get instructions from an expert that may very well help you maximize the amount of financial aid you get! The videos are simple and straightforward, and make the whole process faster and much more clear.

Plus, right now it costs less than $15! I bet Mom & Dad would be happy to foot the bill on that if it meant a potential increase in financial aid (and a shorter FAFSA filing process—parents don’t like it either!) Check it out here:! I’ll put a link in my sidebar, too.

(Also, remember that a lot of financial aid—even from the government!—is awarded on a first-come, first serve basis… So get started on the FAFSA ASAP so you can be sure to be in the running!)
