    So I'm filling out my FAFSA and I see that there is a section where it says "5th year undergraduate" and I suddenly realized: Am I getting less money now? I've only applied for the FAFSA for two years, and the other two years I took out of pocket in order to pay(I was living at home and working 30+ hours a week).

    Anyone know how this works?

    I did 2 extra quarters beyond the standard 4 years and was ineligible for grant money, but eligible for loans--stafford and plus as I remember. I think you are able to receive four years worth of federal grant money for undergrad, so since this is the third time you are applying, I would imagine you are still eligible. Nonetheless, perfect reason to pop into your undergrad's financial aid office and ask.
