Four Reasons to File Your FAFSA

  1. You'll have a better chance at more financial aid! Hunter College has a limited amount of aid, so it's good to be at the front of the line!
  2. Become eligible for more scholarships. Most scholarships look at your FAFSA and some have early deadlines. Don't miss out!
  3. Fund your summer session 2018, qualify for work-study, or get an internship next summer.
  4. Gain more time to apply for grants, loans and scholarships, or to seek alternative funding.

The 2018-2019 academic year will begin on July 1, 2018. You can file your FAFSA between October 1, 2017 and June 30, 2019, but if you wait too long, you may have to come up with the funds yourself, and will miss any opportunity for work-study.
