Good Morning,
October 1st is the beginning of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application process. Please complete the form as soon as possible; grants are distributed on a first come first serve basis. Even if you believe that you may not qualify for aid, I highly encourage you to apply due to the many scholarships require the FAFSA completion. Most importantly, to be eligible for Palomar Promise, your FAFSA has to be completed. Also Mira Costa requires that you complete FAFSA for students to be eligible for free tuition.

Below you will find very helpful links for FAFSA completion.
