This tool is a self-directed presentation that guides students through topics explaining the purpose of the FAFSA, how to obtain a PIN to sign their FAFSA securely online, what information should be gathered, how to complete the FAFSA, and how to submit it. Easily found on the front page of the UHEAA website, this presentation gives high school counselors and financial aid professionals another tool to help their students. To access the presentation go to http://www.uheaa.org/ and click on the "Navigating the FAFSA" button. The presentation can also be found through UHEAA's Facebook page.
