The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form students must complete in order to be considered for all federal financial aid and most state and institutional aid. The FAFSA becomes available on October 1 each year; students should file the FAFSA as early as possible in their senior year of high school and every year they are in college. StepUp Utah has provided resources and events to help you, as an educator, successfully help your students complete their FAFSA.
