: Seniors who are US citizens or eligible noncitizens
should submit the FAFSA. It opens October 1, 2017and is due March 2, 2018 (at the latest). It is very wise for every eligible senior to complete the FAFSA to receive assistance for community colleges or four-year colleges. Begin by making an FSA ID for you and have a parent create an FSA ID if s/he does not have one. Use a personal email address rather than your school email address.
