Beware of Scams

Students are alerted to avoid any organization that charges a fee to apply for federal or state financial aid and scholarships.

  • The correct web site for applying for federal financial aid is www.fafsa.ed.gov.

  • It is NOT www.fafsa.com

  • Avoid any website that ends in .com - these are commercial websites, not government websites.

Report possible fraud to 1-800-MIS-USED (647-8733) or email oig.hotline@ed.gov
