When MUST You File Your Financial Aid Applications?

In financial aid, you’re either quick or you’re dead.

OK, not really, I was trying to make a boring topic more interesting. 🙂

However, the truth is that there is a TON of flat-out WRONG “information” about how the financial aid process really works, who can qualify, the income cut-off, the look-back period, you name it.

Today, I’m covering one of the biggest sources of confusion: deadlines. And when to file, generally.

Do you have to file October 1?

If you rush in your financial aid applications, will you get more money?

I just set the record straight in this video, originally posted on my Facebook page.
