Congratulations on taking steps to continue your education after high school.

Now make sure you that you don’t leave money on the table to pay for it.

The first step is completing your financial aid form, or FAFSA.  Most Alabama high school seniors qualify for Pell Grants of up to $6,195. Pell Grants do not need to be paid back and can be used at two- and four-year colleges.

How can I pay for college?

What is the FAFSA?

I need help completing the FAFSA!

  • Ask your school’s counselor or career coach.
  • Reach out to your college’s financial aid office.
  • Contact Alabama Possible at 205-939-1408 or cashforcollege@alabamapossible.org.
  • Contact Federal Student Aid via chat or call 1-800-4FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).

I submitted my FAFSA. Now what?
