Missed Financial aid deadline

So apparently, in all the hoopla of the spring regarding me failing out of my previous university and transferring into a local community college, I somehow forgot to file for the FAFSA for Fall 09/Spring 10.
Classes aren't in session until the 10th of September, so I don't believe anyone is actually working at the school right about now that I can go see. I'm going to attempt to file for the FAFSA this year anyway, just to see what happens. There isn't a way to apply for aid for Spring 2010 is there? I'm assuming this since Spring 2010 counts as part of the Fall 09 school year. When would/should I apply after this fall term is over? Just eat the bill for Fall A/Fall B(Winter)/Spring A/Spring B (Summer), and apply next year for Fall 2010/Spring 2011?
I got my bill yesterday for the fall and it's due tonight (26th) at 7PM. Even after figuring all this out, there's really no way it'd all be processed by tonight, so should I just pay now and hope to get some grants later? Or will they look at it and go "Hmm, this kid seems financially secure enough to pay. No need to give him money." I actually got a check or something from a Pell Grant for about 2 grand, but this was earlier this year and I honestly didn't know what they wanted me to do with it. I just put it in my bank account and sat on it in case they wanted me to pay them back one day. I figured that maybe it was some sort of extra money, since my tuition price dropped when I went to a CC?
A little flustered right now, I'll post more later if you guys ask for more info.
edit: When I did transfer in the spring, all I was told I needed to do was to change the school on my FAFSA from my past school to my current school, and it was true. I got covered for the Spring of this year in my CC. I guess redoing the FAFSA for the next term must have slipped my feeble mind.
