When should I fill out the FAFSA?Answered
I’m a junior and am definitely going to need financial aid. I heard I have to fill out the FAFSA but I don’t know when or how! Any help would be appreciated.

You are so on top of things for only being a junior!!! You actually won’t be able to file the FAFSA until October 1st of your senior year, so you have some time. You should do it as soon as it opens up though, because I heard the money can run out over time. I submitted the FAFSA this October (2019) and it was nice to get it out of the way early so that I could focus on the rest of my applications in Oct, Nov, and Dec.
Easiest way for me to submit was online here: https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa
