FASFA asks: grade level (have you attended college before)?

<p>Not sure if a student who attended one, 5-week summer college course would be considered as 'having attended colllege before'? Maybe this seems obvious (I guess they have attended!) but I didn't know if they were referring to substantive college enrollment?</p>

<p>If the student is a HS student you put never attended college.</p>

Never attended college & 1st-year undergraduate (high school seniors and/or first-time students should choose this grade level)


<p>Thank you, swimcatsmom! That's what son said I should put, too. Why didn't I see that explanation..? Thanks again!</p>

<p>The instructions are a secret that no one knows exist and they publish in a place where no one can ever find them (seriously). I have posted the link here

<p>Under Step 1, FAFSA on the Web Worksheet, at the bottom of the page is a box NEED HELP? that goes to online help. Or here's the link When</a> you begin college in the 2009-2010 school year, what will be your grade level?</p>

<p>This is question 28 on the paper FAFSA.</p>

<p>Select your grade level in college from July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010. If you are currently a senior in high school or will be a first-time college student, select Never attended college/1st year.</p>

<p>"Grade level" does not mean the number of years you have attended college, but refers to your grade level in regard to completing your degree or certificate. A student who is not enrolled full-time will require more years than a full-time student to reach the same grade level.</p>
