FAFSA Info.

What IS the FAFSA?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)is the form you need to fill out to get any financial aid from the federal government to help pay for college. Each year, over 13 million students who file the FAFSA get more than $120 billion in grants, work-study, and low-interest loans from the U.S. Department of Education.

Lots of states and colleges also use the FAFSA to determine which students get financial aid—and how much they’ll get.

The FAFSA asks for information about you and your family’s finances, including tax returns, so you’ll need your parents’ help to complete it.

**THE FAFSA OPENS OCTOBER 1st. FINANCIAL AID AWARDS ARE ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS!**

Virginia State Aid Info. - VASA

What is VASA?

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) is announcing a brand new process that will enhance college affordability for even more students who call Virginia their home.

For the first time, Virginia students who are ineligible to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), including undocumented students and those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status, now have a way to access state financial aid due to revisions to the Tuition Equity Provision for High School Completers and the creation of the Virginia Alternative State Aid (VASA) Application.

This new state financial aid application is a free and safe way for students to pursue financial assistance for postsecondary education. It supports the statewide strategic plans’ goal of making college access more equitable and affordable for all Virginia students.

Interested students should work with their college admissions and domicile officers to determine whether they meet the Commonwealth’s tuition equity or domicile requirements. Students would then complete the VASA Application so that the institution’s financial aid office can determine eligibility for state need-based aid. The application is now available for students applying or returning to college in the 2022- 2023 financial aid year.

Additional information and the VASA Application can be found at Applying for Virginia State Financial Aid.
