For many students, the first step to getting money for college is completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

Students planning on attending college in the fall of 2018 need to complete the 2018-19 FAFSA to apply for federal financial aid, as well as some state and institutional aid. In this 30-minute webinar, students and parents will receive an introduction to the FAFSA and have their FAFSA questions answered.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, September 26 at:
