Your Last Year of College

Your family will complete the FAFSA needs analysis in the spring of the student's junior year of college. Once you're done with that form, no other earnings will be considered. The student could begin earning as much as he or she possibly can to help pay for the final expenses of finishing that degree.

Keep one thing in mind, if the student decides to go on to graduate school immediately after finishing undergraduate work, the earn "as much as he or she can" approach may have an impact on the next years' financial aid.
