FAFSA Completion Resources



With billions of dollars in financial aid awarded every year, there is no better time to complete your FAFSA and access money for college or career school. To see what aid you qualify for, complete your FAFSA or Minnesota Dream Act application today. Click here to view a printable fact sheet with FAFSA completion resources.

Why is the FAFSA important?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is an online application used to award state, federal, and college-based financial aid. Whether you are attending a 2-year college, 4-year university, or a career or trade school, filling out the FAFSA is the most important step in accessing free money for college. The FAFSA and Minnesota Dream Act are your applications for the Minnesota State Grant, North Star Promise and more financial aid.

For Minnesotans with undocumented status, the state’s Dream Act application is an online form that is also used to apply for state and college based financial aid. See if you are eligible for the Dream Act.

Don’t think you’ll qualify? Think again!

Over $2.5 billion is awarded to undergraduates in Minnesota every school year. This number includes federal, state, and college-based grants, scholarships and loans. The majority of students will receive some type of aid, so it is always worth the time to complete this free application.
