Resources for Students

Every young person should have an equitable opportunity to achieve their greatest postsecondary aspirations. We’ve created tools and partnered with organizations across the country to make sure students like you enroll, persist, and graduate from their chosen postsecondary pathways.

3 Things for FAFSA

1. Who is eligible for federal financial aid?

All US citizens and permanent residents who are enrolled in an eligible program at an eligible college/career/trade school. For more eligibility requirements, see the Federal Student Aid website. If you are a student without a social security number, see our guidance on applying for state aid.

2. What is the first step I need to take to complete the FAFSA?

You need to create your FSA ID for yourself and your contributors. You can use this FSA guide to help you to create your ID, and utilize this checklist as you complete your FAFSA. If your contributor does not have a social security number, visit the Federal Student Aid website to learn how to submit your FAFSA. If you haven’t already, fill out FAFSA as soon as possible to ensure that you get the maximum amount of financial aid ahead of this school year.

3. I’ve already submitted my FAFSA. Now what?

Review your submission summary and create edits as needed. See this helpful guide! You might start receiving award letters from your institutions. If you are waiting on award letters, many colleges are being flexible with deadlines, so advocate for yourself by asking for more time to make an enrollment decision! Make sure to contact your OneGoal Program Director and school counselors, and spend time with your family comparing your award letters. You can also use this digital tool to compare your award letters.

Can OneGoal sponsor my project or organization?


If you are looking to receive financial sponsorship from OneGoal for a project or organization (e.g., podcast, startup), we are not able to provide funding since we are a nonprofit organization.

Can OneGoal help me find a postsecondary program?


Our organization supports students from specific high schools and districts with postsecondary and career preparation starting in the 11th grade. We work with our students to identify their best-fit pathway based on their unique needs. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide specific guidance on individual postsecondary programs.
