Will an investment account affect my fasfa?
I'm am currently a 19 year old student heading into my sophomore year of college, I began investing a few months ago and I've managed to rack up a portfolio worth $5000. I've been growing my portfolio pretty quickly and I'm expecting to reach 10000 within the next month or so and I'm wondering will that affect my fasfa in anyway? I know when filling out the fasfa form it asks about any type of assets you may hold including investments and we'll at the time when I filled it out I had none but now I do and I'm not sure how that will affect me. Does someone have any clue as to whether my portfolio would matter at this point? As to wether it will make a difference, I'm asking if it will change the amount I receive for college and if maybe I would have to end up paying money out of pocket due go my portfolio.
