So you’ve made it through the difficult task of deciding the colleges to which you would like to apply … congratulations!  But your work is not over yet; in addition to completing the admission applications, be sure to apply for financial aid to help pay for college. Financial aid can come in a number of forms such as grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans, and from a number of sources, but there is one common factor required for most federal and state financial aid programs – filing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Some institutions may require another application (such as an institutional scholarship application or summer aid application); for a listing of the required forms and priority filing dates for institutions participating in Virginia financial aid programs, see http://www.schev.edu/students/financialAidAppDeadlines.asp. The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.gov.

If you need help completing the FAFSA, be sure to mark your calendars for Super FAFSA Week 2014 events being held at over 60 locations throughout Virginia during the week of February 1-8, 2014:

Super FAFSA Week (formerly Super Saturday) is a service project offered by the Virginia Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (VASFAA) where individuals seeking funding for postsecondary education receive FREE, professional assistance in completing the FAFSA.

For a list of Super FAFSA Week locations, event details, as well as a list of materials that students should bring to receive assistance, please visit www.vasfaa.org/super.
