Tips for Completing the FAFSA Video A brief video (4:06 minutes) produced by the Department of Education is now available online (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NQ2UakBwL8) offering tips for completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid—the FAFSA. Each year, about 15 million students apply for grants, work-study, and loans for college using the FAFSA. By completing it, students apply to the U.S. Department of Education, the largest source of student aid in America. In many cases, the FAFSA is the only application needed for students to obtain aid from their state or college, too. Recent changes make it quicker and easier than ever to fill out the FAFSA. This video offers tips to help students get started.
