No need based aid, but do I still fill out FAFSA?
Due to my parent’s income, I am not eligible for need-based aid. I will be clicking “no” on that question. Is there a benefit in filling out FAFSA? Will my form still go to the school? It seems such a waste of time since I’m not going to get any need-based aid anyway. One of my friends told me this really funny idea - she said that she is going to fill out the fafsa anyway even though her parents are well off and can pay for her tuition in cash. She said that colleges want to know that the students can afford to pay their high tuition, and the FAFSA will show this. Does that make sense?11 replies
