Before you apply, you should take some time to know a little more about FAFSA. Most of the colleges will give scholarships to freshmen on first come first serve basis, so always make sure that you apply for FAFSA scholarships as soon as possible (around January 1st to January 15th).
Another thing you should remember is; it is completely free to fill out the FAFSA forms. So, don’t get fooled by someone who claims to get you aid for certain price. Even if you have a decent house, you may be still eligible, so don’t miss out on “free money” for your college education.
