Instead of waiting until your senior year to find out your eligibility for federal student aid, you can use FAFSA4caster to estimate your eligibility early, which will give you better insight when making college choices.

Note: FAFSA4caster is not just for high school juniors. Parents of younger students can use the tool to receive early estimates, create scenarios based on future earnings, and then establish college savings strategies. Non-traditional college students (adult learners) can also use FAFSA4caster.

When you're finished entering your data, you can see your estimated federal student aid eligibility information, which is based on the answers you provided in FAFSA4caster. Your estimated federal student aid eligibility will help you better understand the types and approximate amounts of federal student aid for which you may qualify.
