In New Mexico, many college students rely on some form of financial aid. FAFSA Free-for-All seeks to provide students with the maximum opportunity to afford college. First generation college attendees, veterans, and students from low- to moderate-income families are target student populations, though any New Mexico student may attend and receive free support.

The program began in 2006 as College Goal Sunday New Mexico and served students at 4 event site locations. Now, six years later, FAFSA Free-for-All has expanded to serve students at over 60 locations across New Mexico.

The 2014 program goal is to serve 2,074 New Mexico students with FAFSA completion support. aiming to increase the numbers of first generation college students, veterans, and students from low- to moderate-income families complete the FAFSA form by 10%.
