If you have started the college application process, you are most likely familiar with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). When applying for financial aid, be it grants, scholarships or loans, every college will require the FAFSA as part of the financial aid application process. Based on the information you provide to the college via FAFSA, will determine the amount of financial aid that your family is qualified for.
I have seen so many errors... simple mistakes people have made on the FAFSA that will cost them thousands of dollars over the course of a college education. These mistakes vary but are easy to make. Special situation such as divorce or unemployment just contribute to the amount of errors that can occur.
