FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the application that allows a student to apply for federal grants, loans, and work-study programs. All Utah colleges and universities accept the FAFSA to apply for federal financial aid. The application may be completed online at fafsa.gov. Make sure you are on the government’s official FAFSA site by going to fafsa.gov.
Financial Aid Estimator In September 2005, the Secretary of Education formed the bipartisan Commission on the Future of Higher Education to launch a national dialogue on the vital issues of accessibility, affordability, and accountability in higher education. One of the needs identified in the Commission’s final report was to notify students of their federal student aid eligibility earlier in order to help families plan better. They have developed FAFSA4caster to address this need. FAFSA4caster is a companion piece to the official FAFSA on the Web. The free FAFSA4caster tool will assist high school juniors and their families in the following ways: Instantly calculate an estimated EFC, inform the student of potential Federal Pell Grant eligibility, and reduce the time needed to complete the FAFSA when the student applies as a senior. FAFSA4caster Access Students and families interested in assessing their eligibility for federal student aid can access FAFSA4caster by visiting: https://fafsa.ed.gov/spa/fafsa4c/#/landing
