Federal Aid Service – Counselors

Give your students a free, fast way to claim their financial aid

We’ve partnered with Sallie Mae, a trusted national student lender, to ensure students and families get their free money first from the government.

“[Embark has] helped thousands of US students claim government aid and pay for college.”
