Incoming college students will have an easier way to collect financial aid for their respective universities, thanks to a new initiative by the federal government. The new guidelines will allow students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) three months earlier.
The result is expected to help students understand how much aid they will receive earlier in the college search process. Colleges are hopeful this change will help them recruit more students.
