Fafsa promotion code??? maybe free coupon code?

By Coupon Clipper

Sooooo I am such a bad procrastinator, and I have missed the free deadline for fafsa, now they are gonna charge me $80 to file online, there is an option for a promotion code, is there any kind of code to reduce the price of the $80??? Or make it free?

If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it!!!

I know fafsa is normally free, but the deadline is 2 days away, so now they are charging late registration
I thought last year that I didnt pay a fee this late in the game, and yall were all right, I went to Fafsa.com instead of Fafsa.ed.gov and they tried to pull it off as if they were fafsa and then trying to charge me as if I didnt have to fill out MY OWN INFO! Scam!!! Thank yall sooooo much, almost everyone should get best answer but I can only give it to one, Thanks!!

LOL FASFA is a federal program not an online shopping site so there’s no such thing. Its just like college applications they don’t make exceptions for anything because they argue you had all the time in the world to do it. If you waited until the last minute it’s your own fault.

Make sure if its even worth doing it because even though FASFA might accept your application now I know most schools will not and have their own dates. The school charges the late fee.

Just make sure you went to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ … that is the real website, and they shouldn’t charge a late fee either… or have a promotion code for that matter.

No, there is no such thing as late registration.

I’m guessing that you’re accidentally hooked up with fafsa.com or one of the other paid-assistance FAFSA sites, rather than http://fafsa.ed.gov – the one and only US Department of Education site. The Department of Education never charges “late fees” or any other type of fee.

Furthermore – unless you are looking for financial aid for the current summer semester, the deadline isn’t in 2 days anyway – it’s in 367 days – as in NEXT June 30th.

The deadline for the 2009-2010 FAFSA – the one that you’ll need to complete if you want aid for the school year that starts this coming fall (August? September?) is June 30, 2010.

What you HAVE missed is your school’s “priority aid deadline”, and that’s important, but it’s hardly the end of the world. By missing that deadline, you have lost out on your opportunity to be considered for certain supplementary aid programs this coming year. Those programs are small aid programs, and there is only so much money to go around. Your school uses the “priority aid” deadline to reward applicants who get their forms in early – they were considered for those “extra” forms of aid, and you won’t be.

HOWEVER – you will still be eligible for exactly the same Stafford loans and Pell Grants that you would have received if you had applied the day this year’s FAFSA was first released (January 1st). Nothing about your procrastination will have any impact on those two programs – and those are far and away the 2 largest programs, and the programs that you are most likely to receive assistance from.

Ignore the scam artists who are pressuring you for an $80 fee for a deadline that isn’t even when they say it is – and complete the 2009-2010 FAFSA (make sure you’re filling out that one!!!) on the http://fafsa.ed.gov site.

No fee. Ever.

Good luck.
