Do I have to complete the FAFSA for merit scholarships?

Post by legalbeegul » Sun Nov 19, 2017 5:26 pm

My family will not qualify for need-based aid on the FAFSA, but I would still like to be considered for merit scholarships--do I have to fill out a FAFSA to be considered?

Individual schools may have different instructions, but generally, you do not need to finish your FAFSA to qualify for merit aid. You still need to fill it out if you're going to take out loans for your remaining expenses.
