FAFSA on the Web

Michelle Hartwell

college admissions expert advice from eprep.comThe Department of Education is reformatting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be a bit more user friendly. The application in its original state was a complicated and lengthy form, and though it still requires a lot of information to be entered, the form is at least now easier to understand.

The new online form has a built-in set of “if/then” statements that are designed to make the form adapt to an applicants personal information. The online form is programmed to avoid asking questions that do not apply to a students particular financial situation. So if a student’s family does not own a home, he or she is not asked about home equity or monthly mortgage payments.

In addition to being a bit more intuitive to the user’s experience, the online FAFSA applications eliminate the hassle of paperwork, and provide faster results. Check out the free FAFSA on the Web.
