FAFSA is Now Open
Utah students leave as much as $400,000 unclaimed each year because they don’t fill out the FAFSA! Filling out the FAFSA is about more than student loans; it can also link you to scholarship opportunities. Start the application here: https://www.utahfutures.org/fafsa. Parents and students both will need an FSA ID. Questions? See Ms. Sorenson.
