College Moms, I have a question

Are you supposed to apply and get accepted to a college first and then fill out the fasfa, or does it not make a difference if you fill out the fasfa before hand?

 My school made me fill out the FAFSA first. It just makes it easier in the long run.

 Fill out the FAFSA now. You should have it done before you apply if possible.

The earlier you fill out the FASFA the better

Thanks for the quick responses ladies!!! I am filling it out now before applying and just putting the schools I am planning to apply for. I am nervous though, what if I dont get into any of the schools I apply for. :(

Yeah, the FAFSA is due like now!  You can always take classes, esp. core, if you are just starting.  You dont need to get into a program right away.  Good luck!

 Fafsa was already due. It's due in March. Idk what they do after that. Idk maybe it was different because I went to college right after high school so they applications were due for colleges before fafsa. Usually college apps are due in November (the year before you are going) then fafsa is due in March after you get your taxes done. When I filled out fafsa the first year I just put all the colleges I applied to because I didn't know which one I was going to. In order to do Fafsa you have to have an idea of what college you want to go to because they need the school code. Anyways good luck and if you need help I can try to answer any questions!

you can fill out the fafsa first and just choose all of the schools that you are looking at when it asks for which school to send it.
