From your friends at the U.S. Department of Education:
"What’s the rush you ask?
Schools and states have a limited amount of aid, and a bunch of states have a FAFSA deadline of “as soon as possible after October 1,” (meaning they actually could run out of financial aid) so it’s good to be at the front of the line!
Don’t leave money on the table. FAFSA is now easier to fill than ever before and it can mean an opportunity for more students to go to college.
Learn more about what you need to get started, and follow this step by step guide to get through it."
Students who plan to apply to college this year (or next year) should take either the ACT or the SAT test for college admission. Scholarship organizations also ask for test results as well, so students will need to take either test as part of the process of applying for college scholarships.
