FAFSA on the Web Toolkit.
Office of Student Financial Assistance (ED), Washington, DC.
The online version of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows students to apply for federal financial aid using the Internet. In many cases, FAFSA on the Web may be used to apply for financial aid from other sources, such as states or schools. Data are secured, so sending an application through the Internet is as safe as mailing a paper form. The program edits answers automatically, and no application fee is required. This packet includes a cover letter and a laminated card with tips for using FAFSA on the Web (what to do before beginning the application process, frequently asked questions, tips for completing the form, and things not to do when filling out the form). The packet also offers a how-to flyer, a brochure entitled "Funding Your Education," two posters advertising FAFSA on the Web, a trifold brochure explaining the process, Post-It notes, and an instructional CD-ROM.
