Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is an application that collects students' financial and other information used to determine their eligibility for aid. It is used for federal student aid programs and by many schools and scholarships to award funds. The FAFSA can be completed on the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov or by submitting a paper application, which can be picked up at your community college financial aid office or by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID.

It is highly recommended that the FAFSA be completed on the Internet because it is easier and processed faster.
Receiving Your Aid
Students who are eligible for aid may receive an award letter from their community college outlining the type and amount of aid the school will offer. Students should review their award letter and accept or decline each of the financial aid awards. If the award is accepted, funds will be directly applied to your tuition and fees at your community college. If the financial aid award is more than the cost of your tuition and fees, a refund check will be mailed to you. Students who are not eligible will receive a letter indicating the reasons for ineligibility.
