A friend of mine, a young woman in her late teens, is hoping to apply to college for the spring term 2012. The application deadline is November 1, and I believe the financial aid application has to be in 10/15.
She and her mom asked me to help with the application process.
I just checked the FAFSA site for her and the deadline for the FAFSA for the 2011-12 school year was June 30.
Does this mean that a person who decides to try for admission for spring term, who hasn't done a FAFSA in the winter/spring 2011, cannot apply for financial aid at all?
I'm thinking there must be a way to deal with this, and hoping for some suggestions.
