Won’t let me submit

I’ve been struggling with the app for the past 4 days. No matter where I am or even if the connection is great, it keeps telling me it can’t submit due to network problems. My connection is really good and everything worse works on my phone so I know it isn’t connection. On wifi or off it still won’t let me submit my form which is really frustrating especially since I wanted to submit it by the 1st. Now I’m more and more behind still struggle to submit the fasfa which I completed multiple times now.

Makes it easy

I was trying to file FAFSA for my second year of college, but the website was being weird and would either kick me out or never load whenever I tried to proceed. I saw that there was an app and decided to try, it worked a million times better! Super user-friendly layout and I was able to finish smoothly. Definitely try if the site gives you problems.

This entire corporation is a scourge on education

I have never seen a company/website have such an awful user experience AND such awful customer service. After you’ve spent your money they will do absolutely everything they can in their power to avoid paying you a penny and their customer service will be condescending and belittling before realizing that they’re wrong, long story short this whole corporation is a prime example of why we need an education revolution in America
