FAFSA February

With a newly simplified Free Application for Federal Student Aid now ready, Sallie Mae has rolled out FAFSA February, a monthlong PR campaign to demystify the daunting task of documenting need.

On a dedicated Web site, families can access new online help and chat with experts.

A national study by Sallie Mae and Gallup found that 24 percent of students didn't compete the federal form last year, often because they weren't aware of it or didn't think they would qualify for aid.
