FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the application that allows a student to apply for federal grants, loans, and work-study programs. All Utah colleges and universities accept the FAFSA to apply for federal financial aid. The application may be completed using a paper and pencil application (available in the counseling center) or online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Parents and students should be careful of sites that use FAFSA in their URL. The FAFSA application is free; if the site you go to attempts to charge you for the application, you are not at the government’s official site. To be sure you are at the official site, use this link. And, don’t forget your PIN! Both parent and student need separate PINs so that they can electronically sign and access information about their FAFSA application.
