How to Get Step-By-Step FAFSA Help for Free

It’s a brand new year, and that means it’s time for a brand new financial aid application–the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (more commonly known as the FAFSA) is online and ready for you to fill out. Remember, every family should submit a FAFSA (see below). And this year, I can offer you some assistance so the job isn’t as daunting.

Free Help from My FAFSA Assistant

If you’re one of the thousands of parents who finds filing the FAFSA just as intimidating as completing your tax return, I have good news! For the past several years I’ve offered help with the FAFSA through a video tutorial series called My FAFSA Assistant–and it is available to you absolutely FREE.

I’ve included a step-by-step video tutorial for each page of the FAFSA, and I offer you some little known tips as well as answers to some of the most frequently asked questions to help you finish quickly and efficiently. I want to assist you in securing the maximum financial aid award for your family.

Should I Even Bother to File the FAFSA?

Absolutely. Every single family with a college-bound high school student or child in college should file the FAFSA. It is potentially your child’s opportunity to qualify for free grants and scholarship funds for college, and it is also the only way to get access to federal student loans. (Still doubtful? Learn more about the FAFSA here.)

How Will My FAFSA Assistant Help?

I’ve been working with families on their college funding plans for over 12 years, and have become very familiar with the ins and outs of the FAFSA filing process–including which questions parents and students find the most difficult and confusing. The video tutorial at MyFAFSAAssistant.org walks you through the entire FAFSA filing process, of course, also covers the latest information on this year’s new redesigned FAFSA application. It will help your family move through the form as quickly as possible–and that’s important, because filing deadlines are fast approaching. Most “free” money (scholarships and grants, which don’t need to be repaid) are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

What’s the Catch?

There is no catch (Really!). I’ve set up the site and tutorials as a community outreach project; it is an opportunity for me to “pay forward” the knowledge I’ve been privileged to obtain over the past several years working with my clients. So you won’t have to pay a thing, and we won’t contact you or try to sell you any services. There truly are no strings attached.

I hope you will take advantage of this wonderful tool, and feel free to share it with friends and family who are facing the challenge of filing the FAFSA as well. So check out www.MyFAFSAAssistant.org. Enjoy!

All the best,
Deborah Fox
