FAFSA: You're Worth It

FAFSA Resources

There's a whole community ready to help you pay for college

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is the key to unlocking college financial aid from federal, state, and local sources. If your immigration status prevents you from qualifying for federal aid, you might still be eligible for aid through the Massachusetts Application for State Financial Aid (MASFA), which can help you attend public institutions of higher education in Massachusetts. Apply for financial aid helps keep college an option for the fall but does not commit you to enrolling. Fill out the FAFSA or MASFA as early as possible to maximize the aid you'll receive!
