Question

Should I complete the FAFSA if I am going back for a second undergraduate degree?

Answer

If you need financial aid to help for your second undergraduate degree, then yes, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)®.

If you have already earned a bachelor’s or other professional degree, you are likely no longer eligible for federal grants. Meaning your student aid will be limited to loans, scholarships, and work-study.

If you need further assistance paying for college, I would recommend taking some steps to see what types of additional financial aid (institutional or state aid) you may be eligible for (https://www.edvisors.com/blog/how-to-get-more-financial-aid/?topic=Student+Loans) to help cover the costs.

Best of luck!
