A college education can be expensive.

For many students, that cost means it isn’t a question of if you’re going to need help paying for school, but a question of how much. Paying for college starts with the FAFSA® (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA is a form you and your parents fill out with your family’s financial information. Colleges use it to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and institutional financial aid. Financial aid can look different depending on your household income and your eligibility for scholarships. Our financial aid quiz can test your knowledge on how to prepare for the FAFSA application. Here, let’s find out how much you know about federal financial aid before you fill out the FAFSA.
