FAFSA Information

This page may be updated in January when new instructions are expected.

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

To apply for federal student aid, you need to complete the FAFSASM or Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and easier than ever, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.
In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid.

Why should I fill out the FAFSA?

If you don’t fill out the FAFSA, you could be missing out on a lot of financial aid! We’ve heard a number of reasons students think they shouldn’t complete the FAFSA. Here are a few:

  • “I (or my parents) make too much money, so I won’t qualify for aid.”
  • “Only students with good grades get financial aid.”
  • “The FAFSA is too hard to fill out.”
  • “I’m too old to qualify for financial aid.”
If you think any of these statements apply to you, then you should read “Myths About Financial Aid.” (http://www.studentaid.ed.gov/sites/default/files/financial-aid-myths.pdf) The reality is EVERYONE should fill out the FAFSA!


What Information Do I Need When I Fill Out the FAFSA?

Here’s a checklist!

You should have the following information and documents with you as you fill out the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):

  • Your Social Security number
  • Your parents’ Social Security numbers if you are providing parent information*
  • Your driver’s license number if you have one
  • Your Alien Registration Number if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Federal tax information or tax returns** including IRS W-2 information, for you (and your spouse, if you are married), and for your parents if you are providing parent information
    • If you have not yet filed an income tax return, complete and submit the FAFSA using estimated tax information
    • Use income records for the year prior to the academic year for which you are applying: for instance, if you are filling out the 2013-14 FAFSA, you will need 2012 tax information
  • Records of your untaxed income, such as child support received, interest income, and veterans non education benefits, for you, and for your parents if you are providing parent information
  • Information on cash; savings and checking account balances; investments, including real estate but not including the home in which you live; and business and farm assets for you, and for your parents if you are providing parent information

How do I fill out the FAFSA?

The best and easiest way to file is online at www.fafsa.gov is faster and easier than using paper.
You can fill out the FAFSA January 1 – June 30 of your senior year in high school, the sooner the better.


What happens after I fill out the FAFSA?

Applying isn’t the last step; your FAFSA has to be processed, and then you get an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which your college or career school uses to figure out how much aid you can get. Find out more about what happens after you fill out the FAFSA, (http://www.studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa/next-steps ) including how aid is calculated and when and how you’ll get your aid.
