FAFSA Toolkit

StartWithFAFSA.org PDFFall is the best time to remind your high school seniors about the importance of completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This critical step is the first in the process of qualifying for state and federal aid to help pay for college.

Given your packed schedule and the importance of early FAFSA notification to students and parents, we’ve loaded our FAFSA Toolkit for Counselors with resources that are “ready to roll” for your convenience. The tools provided in the kit are available below for you to download and use as you please.

Don't forget to visit our FAFSA website for students and their parents at StartWithFAFSA.org. Help the families you serve learn about the FAFSA by sharing this site with them where new information about FAFSA completion is posted weekly.
