UCSB Financial Aid Office’s Online Tutorial for Federal Student Aid Form Receives National Award, Rolls Out 2013-14 Edition

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at UC Santa Barbara is once again offering its online tutorial to assist current and prospective students in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


The FAFSA is used by nearly all colleges and universities to determine a student’s eligibility for federal-, state- and college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, educational loans, and work-study programs.

Produced by the financial aid office at UCSB, “7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA: A Student’s Guide to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid” is designed to help prospective students complete the 2013-14 FAFSA in seven clear and easy-to-understand steps. It can be found by clicking here.

The tutorial was recently awarded a Gold Star by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, a nonprofit membership organization focused primarily on student aid legislation, regulatory analysis, and training for financial aid administrators. The award recognizes innovation in the financial aid arena.
