Professional FAFSA Preparer
There is no one designation needed for someone to get paid for helping people complete their FAFSA form. Virtually anyone can extend themselves as a “Professional FAFSA Preparer,” which is a little scary.

If you truly feel like you need help filling out the FAFSA form (the instructions are very clear when you complete the form online), consider asking your tax preparer or financial planner for help.
