The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly referred to as the FAFSA, is your first step. The FAFSA determines your eligibility for valuable federal and/or state grants as well as federal work-study positions. Never assume that you won’t qualify!

At Gaston College, we work with families one-on-one as you navigate the financial aid process. Every student should complete the FAFSA and get informed about your real options.
