Students applying for college will need to fill out a form called the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, through the Department of Education's official FAFSA website.

Many sites online will use a URL similar to the FAFSA page, and even a similar page design to collect your personal information. To ensure that your information stays secure, double-check that your FAFSA URL ends in .ed.gov and that the home page is identical to the photo of the FAFSA home page below.
