Are you getting prepared to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)? There are a few scams you need to be aware of. Beware of shady financial advisors who may pressure you into making financial decisions that will benefit them more than you. Most financial advisors are not well-versed in FSA. Also, avoid paying a fee to a third party to help you fill out the FAFSA. There are representatives at your school that can answer your questions and walk you through the process for free. The FAFSA can be an intimidating form to fill out, so use any and all free resources that your school provides.
