WV AG Reminds College-Bound Students to Submit FAFSA Applications

January 3rd, 2017 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey urges college-bound students to not overlook the word “free” as they prepare to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, a necessary part of qualifying for financial assistance.
The Attorney General reminds students that while some agencies may charge for filling out the necessary paperwork, they can do it themselves for free.
“Many students rely on financial assistance to help cover the ever-rising cost of college,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “It’s important for students not to be taken advantage of at a time when they’re seeking help.”
The application period, now well underway, opened Oct. 1 as opposed to the traditional, but much later New Year’s Day start date. Students should file as soon as possible for states, colleges and scholarship programs that award aid on a first-come, first-serve basis.
