Do this as soon as possible after October 1. Submit the FAFSA in time to meet
each college's financial aid deadline. (These can vary and can be different
than admissions deadlines.) Contact the financial aid offices at your colleges
for more information. The Louisiana FAFSA deadline is July 1 for TOPS scholarships
as well as all other scholarships administered by LOSFA. If you file a FAFSA
online using www.fafsa.ed.gov
make sure to complete the process by submitting and printing the confirmation
page. Save the printout of the confirmation page for your records and verification.
