FAFSA: Any student applying for federal aid (or aid in general) must complete the FAFSA. The Office of Federal Student Aid has also created a video/DVD that may be obtained by calling (800) 394-7084. The video includes information for both students and parents. FAFSA also has an easily navigated Web site ( where families can register for a PIN (the password is necessary for applying online) and find out everything they need to know about the form. Many colleges have priority dates in February and March but no firm deadline for applying for financial aid. Students are urged to apply by the priority date. This is the date by which the college needs the application in order to award the most attractive aid package. After this date, funds may be limited or depleted, and students may not get as much aid as they need.

           Here is a general timeline to keep in mind:

February: Many colleges have priority dates and deadlines now.

End of March: Admissions and financial aid notifications are mailed.

April: Students weigh offers of admission and compare aid awards.

May 1: Students must tell all colleges yes or no and make deposits.
