What is the FAFSA and why do I need to complete it?

 The FAFSA is an application that stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  There is no cost to fill out the form and can be found at www.fafsa.com or by calling 866-514-5948.  Completing a FAFSA is required because nearly every student is eligible for some type of financial aid.  We want to make sure that you are utilizing all available resources so you will be successful in completing your education.  If you would like assistance completing the FAFSA, this scholarship application, or other financial assistance applications, contact the Educational Opportunity Center at 970-491-6862.
