FAFSA

FAFSA IS NOW OPEN

  • Do not let the FAFSA intimidate you! It can be overwhelming just because it requires so much information, but just take it one step at a time and read each question carefully.



  • Allow yourself a designated time to complete the FAFSA so you do not feel rushed, but remember you can always save and return to it later


  • Utilizing the help tools and frequently asked questions area located on the right side of the website can be VERY helpful)





  • The FAFSA is FREE - never pay to fill out the FAFSA or give anyone else your information to file for you




  • The FAFSA requires information regarding both the student and the parent!




  • You will need 2019 tax information to complete the FAFSA




  • Both students and parents need to create an FSA ID before filing the FAFSA. This is an extra security precaution to be sure that all confidential information is safe and protected.
