Omitted previous college on fafsa. Can I fix this?

<p>Hello, </p>

<p>So long story short, I took some bad advice from a family member and omitted a previous college (due to poor grades) on my current community college application and fafsa. I did not receive any type of financial aid from the college I omitted. </p>

<p>It's been nearly 2 yeas since I first lied about this and I've been losing sleep over it since then. I would like to amend my fafsa and school application, but I'm afraid I could end up expelled, or worse, in jail (it says maximum of 20 year punishment for lying on the fafsa).</p>

<p>Is it possible to fix this without getting in any legal trouble? </p>

<p>I feel like the biggest idiot in the world for lying over something so trivial and I just want to set things right.</p>

<p>Thanks for any advice you might have</p>

<p>Go get this sorted out first at your community college. They will have suggestions for the best way to deal with the FAFSA. </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
