Do I need to fill out the FAFSA application?

A FAFSA form isn’t required to be accepted into college or Promise, but it is required for virtually all other scholarship and financial aid opportunities. If you need help with FAFSA, contact your school guidance counselor.

Only lawfully documented citizen of the United States can fill out a FAFSA. However, Promise will accept and fund any qualified scholar regardless of citizenship status.

Promise money will not disqualify you from other scholarships and is not reported on the FAFSA form either.
