DOTHAN Ala. (WTVY) - College after High School is the next step for some students.
That's why filling out free application for federal student aid or FAFSA is crucial for some families.
Sign-up for the college financial aid program began last October for the 2018-2019 school year and deadlines are slowly approaching.
School counselors are assisting parents and students with FAFSA options.
The earlier you get your FAFSA done the better your eligibility chances are of getting certain loans.
Deadlines vary according to the state and school so check the FAFSA website to see the deadline for your intended college or university.
