(UNDATED) - An important window will soon open for Indiana college-bound students who need help paying for tuition.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or "FAFSA," determines how much financial aid schools can award based on a family's financial situation.

Dr. Laurie Wolfe with the National Association of Financial Aid Administrators says families need to understand the difference, and look at ways to reduce costs before students begin college.

While in high school, Wolfe says students should consider volunteer opportunities that can be helpful experience in getting a scholarship, or high school courses that can be counted for college credit.

Applications for Financial Aid can be filed starting January 1st.
