Why Is Our Service FREE?

Everybody should have the
opportunity to go to college

We want to help make sure every student can afford their education. The Department of Education sponsors students with over $150 billion in financial aid every year.

To get your aid, you need to accurately complete the FAFSA. Citizen is here to help you.


The government doesn’t charge,
and neither should anybody else.

You can fill out the FAFSA for free with the Department of Education, or you can use our free, intuitive assistant.

Citizen provides you the tools to ensure the right completion of your FAFSA.

Get paid

So how do we get paid
if our service is free?

We will show you personalized offers from our partners that can help you through college.
You can choose which services you’d like to receive more information about, and our partners pay us for the introduction.

We won’t share your personal information without your explicit permission.

See What Our Users Say

I’ve seen the FAFSA before and it looks really intimidating, that’s why normally my mom does it but Citizen is something I would be able to do!

Carolina L. | University of Miami

I have friends who have never done the FAFSA before and they are intimidated by it , so they procrastinate on doing it for a long time. Since Citizen is easier they will be like, "Oh, I can do this!"

Glenda A. | Barry University

I really like this new application for FAFSA, because it is short, and takes less time to fill out.
