The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the first step in the financial aid process. The FAFSA helps determine your elibility for federal financial aid, such as the Pell Grant, student loans, and college work-study.

You will need to gather several documents before filling out the FAFSA. These all relate to the prior-prior year taxes (more info below on PPY):

  • Your 1040 Federal Tax Form
  • Your spouse's 1040 Federal Tax Form, if you filed separately
  • Your parents 1040 Federal Tax Forms, if you are a dependent
  • W-2 Forms
  • Child support received or paid
  • Welfare benefits received
  • Worker's Compensation received
  • Any other untaxed income or benefits
  • Value of investments
  • Total balance of cash, savings and checking accounts

After you have gathered the information listed above, you can fill out the FAFSA online. If you need help filling out the FAFSA, come to the Financial Aid Office  and  we will be happy to assist you.

With the switch to PPY, students and families will be able to:

  • File the FAFSA earlier. The FAFSA is made available January 1 of each calendar year, yet it is uncommon for a family or individual to be prepared to file an income tax return in the month of January. Under the new PPY system, the 2017-18 FAFSA will be available in October 2016, rather than January 1, 2017, and students can use the PPY’s completed income tax return.
  • More easily submit a FAFSA. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), which allows automatic population of a student’s FAFSA with tax return data and decreases the need for additional documentation, can be used by millions more students and families under PPY, since tax data from two-years prior would be readily available upon application.
  • Receive earlier notification of financial aid packages. If students apply for aid earlier, colleges can in turn provide financial aid notifications to students earlier, ensuring that students and families have more time to prepare for college costs. Early notification also means more time for financial aid administrators to counsel students and families.
Button that says Create a New FSA ID

Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to fafsa.gov, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®) at www.nslds.ed.gov, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and Agreement to Serve (ATS) at www.teach-ats.ed.gov.

Only create an FSA ID using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use. You are not authorized to create an FSA ID on behalf of someone else, including a family member. Misrepresentation of your identity to the federal government could result in criminal or civil penalties.
