It started Jan. 1 as one of the first challenges facing college-bound students: Filling out the form for FAFSA -- the Free Application for Federal Student Aid -- which can make that first college class seem like a breeze.

Less than two months after the start of the student financial aid program's filing period, FAFSA deadlines loom. There are various federal and state deadlines, and colleges may have earlier deadlines, so students are advised to check with the colleges that they're applying to for the 2011-12 school year.
