No matter when you decide to start an online degree program, be sure to apply for Federal Financial Aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Even if the application deadline has passed, your application will still be processed and loan proceeds disbursed to you if you qualify. So even if you have to pay your tuition out-of-pocket, you can be reimbursed once your financial aid is approved. The FAFSA is available online or in the financial aid office of your university.
