Yes. Yes. Yes. Students and their families sometimes mistakenly think that they don’t qualify for financial aid and prevent themselves from receiving it by failing to apply. In addition, there are a few sources of financial aid such as unsubsidized Stafford and PLUS loans that are available regardless of need, but to be considered for these loans, you must first fill out the FAFSA. In addition, some merit based aid such as scholarships require the FAFSA. The FAFSA form is free, so, take advantage of the opportunity it may offer you. You risk nothing if you complete and submit the form, and you may find that you qualify for financial assistance that you never expected.
