"The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) released findings from its survey that show students are starting to benefit from the Early Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which was implemented about five years ago," Diverse: Issues in Higher Education reports.
..."'The benefits of Early FAFSA are coming to fruition as students are able to apply for financial aid, and institutions are able to extend their aid offers sooner,'said Justin Draeger, NASFAA's president and CEO, "Knowing months sooner what to expect financially also levels the playing field for lower income students who might otherwise be left scrambling to make decisions on college attendance at the last minute.'"
