get cash for college now

Complete the FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid – now and increase your chances of receiving financial aid for college. The FAFSA is used to determine how much grant, scholarship and loan funding you can receive. It helps you and your family compare costs at different schools and plan your college expenses.

It’s Game On for Winners.
Did you know that the earlier you complete the FAFSA, the more likely you are to receive aid? That’s because schools have their own set deadlines and limited aid to award on a first come, first served basis. Many colleges and scholarship programs use your FAFSA information to determine your eligibility for their financial aid. Why lose out?

Totally Free and Pretty Simple.
You can use 2016 income and tax information instead of estimating or waiting until you file this year’s return. Better yet, you may be able to automatically retrieve and import your tax information into your application through FAFSA’s new IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

You Can Do It. We Can Help.
I Know I Can offers FAFSA workshops where students and parents can complete the FAFSA with assistance from college advisors and trained volunteers. Not able to make our workshops? IKIC’s guide, below, walks you through the process. You can also see your IKIC advisor for help!
