US State Government Aid
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to apply for most state loan, grant and scholarship programs, in addition to the federal loans and grants. When you submit the FAFSA to the US Department of Education, they forward the information on the form to the state student assistance agency.
Each state has a different FAFSA submission deadline. If you submit your FAFSA by March 1, you will be in time for all state deadlines. If you miss the deadline, you will be ineligible to receive state aid for the entire academic year.
Procedures for applying for state prepaid tuition programs and the national guard differ from state to state.
The amount of information provided on the state web sites varies from state to states. Some states provide comprehensive information about residency requirements, loan, grant, scholarship and prepaid tuition programs and other state aid programs. Others provide minimal information.
The US Department of Education also publishes a list of State Higher Education Agencies.
We recommend visiting the sites for both your state of residence and for the states of the colleges to which you are applying.
