Filling out Fafsa - Asset Networth Above \$1,600 or Below  [#permalink]

Anybody know how the results in FAFSA will impact if one has assets above \$1,600 (but let's say below \$7,000).

I have blue-chip stock portfolio and a consumer loan (currently interest free for another year). If I liquidate stocks and pay off debt I can bring that balance below \$1,600. However, I do not want to do a fire-sale, especially since I have interest-free debt for another year.

Just curious what would be the impact of FAFSA if I keep it as is, or bring the balance below \$1,600. Suppose no other assets.

Would appreciate any help.

From what I have experienced, your assets do not affect the fafsa unless your school grants need based scholarships but most I have seen are merit based.
