The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used by US citizens and permanent residents to apply for financial aid from the US federal and state governments. US universities and colleges also use the information submitted on the FAFSA for computing need-based awards. International students are not eligible for the US government aid programs (e.g., Pell Grant, SEOG Grant, Stafford Loan, Perkins Loan, PLUS Loan, and Federal Work-Study). However, many schools will ask international students to submit a FAFSA so that they may use the data for assessing financial need.
Before filing a FAFSA, international students should ask their prospective schools about the procedure they should use when applying for institutional aid. Some schools require students to file a FAFSA as part of their application for institutional aid.
