FAFSA for 2022-23!
FAFSA is good news, because it means college financial aid opportunities for high school seniors, returning college students, and adults who are planning to head to college or post-secondary education. FAFSA.gov is where families can apply starting on October 1! Dependent students (most common) will need parental support to complete the FAFSA and renew each year. To learn how FAFSA defines dependent students or to access tutorials or support, you can use resources at FAFSA.gov, Federal Financial Aid's youtube channel, or go to Michigan's MiStudentAid website.
Michigan Student Aid is the home for TIP, Michigan Competitive Scholarship and more. Students must apply in their senior year. Deadline is March 1st for MCS and August 31st of senior year for TIP.
