FAFSA Facts (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

University of Montevallo

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step to receiving financial aid for college!

The Office of Federal Student Aid provides more than $150 billion in grants, work-study funds, and loans each year. Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and quick and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid available to pay for college. In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for aid. We encourage students with jobs to file their Federal Income Tax Returns and any students or parents that do file their taxes to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing the FAFSA!

Students and/or parents are invited to stop by the UM Student Aid Office, located on the first floor of Palmer Hall, anytime Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., for free FAFSA preparation assistance. The FAFSA launched on October 1, 2018, and can be found online at The FAFSA asks for income and tax information from two years prior.

For the upcoming 2019–20 award year, students and parents will report their 2017 income and tax information.

The University of Montevallo keeps parents informed with the Falcon Family Update.
