FAFSA Made Easier - Really!

We recommend all students file the FAFSA, which is the key to getting all kinds of financial aid. All CPC students have access to the FAFSA-Made-Easier tool that will simplify the submission process. Two out of three high schools also use this tool so check in with your guidance office for access or send them this link to inquire.

Students can begin entering data into their goingmerry account as early as September 13th, so they are ready to hit submit when the FAFSA opens on October 1st. This tool is free and makes completing the FAFSA easier with the following features. Check out the three categories of financial aid here.
