State-Based Aid

Filling out the FAFSA can also qualify you for state financial aid programs, including grants, scholarships, loans and even sometimes tuition waivers.

Eligibility and Deadlines

Other than being a resident of the state, eligibility will vary from state to state, so it’s a good idea to contact your state’s department of education here to find more information. Deadlines for state aid can be found on the FSA (federal state aid) website here, but there may be other deadlines for certain state-based aid that are not covered on the federal government website.
