When the federal government changed the FAFSA form several years ago, the College Board created this program to assist postsecondary institutions, state scholarship programs, and other organizations in measuring a family's financial strength and analyzing its ability to contribute to college costs.

This form is submitted to some 300 private colleges and universities along with the FAFSA when seeking financial aid from these institutions.
