Do I need to fill out the FAFSA application?

Yes, filling out FAFSA is now a requirement for all students who intend to accept funding from New Haven Promise, except for those unable to do so because of citizenship status. In those cases, New Haven Promise must communicate with any student in advance of funding. If you need help with FAFSA, contact your school guidance counselor.

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