Can you apply for financial aid after freshman year?

Hey everyone! I'm just wondering if I can apply for financial aid after my freshman year of college. My family's financial situation has changed and I'm not sure if it's possible to apply for aid after first year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Absolutely, you can definitely apply for financial aid after your freshman year of college. In fact, it's recommended that students reapply for financial aid every year by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Since your family's financial situation has changed, it's crucial to update this information in your new application. Changes in income, the number of siblings attending college simultaneously, or any other changes in your family's financial situation can affect your financial aid eligibility. Don't forget to also check with your college's financial aid office, as they may have institutional aid or scholarships that you can apply for. Lastly, keep an eye on the priority deadlines to ensure you are considered for the maximum amount of aid available.
