Filing the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the definition of tedium. Unnecessary complications, prying information, and hours of frustration make up the typical FAFSA experience.
It’s a daunting experience, but if given the time and patience, filling out the FAFSA form could help a student earn a significant amount of financial aid.

Reading through its board could help clear up some of your FAFSA questions and complications. See the whole question and answer session here.
