FAFSA (FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID)
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) information will be based on 2015 income. You must fill out a FAFSA each year in order to be eligible for scholarships in the following year. If you need free assistance filling out the form, please call North Alabama Center for Education Excellence (NACEE) at 256-372-4600 and ask for Marcus Crutcher. Any student hoping to qualify for work study programs, Federal student loans, grants, or college, academic, athletic, and band scholarships need to complete this form.
FAFSA Guide: Nitro, an online guide helping students figure out how to pay for college, has just released a step-by-step guide on how to fill out the FAFSA, question by question. Visit www.nitrocollege.com. With 100+ questions, the FAFSA can be a confusing process. Use this guide to help understand each question, why it is being asked, and how to answer it.
Top 10 FAFSA Mistakes
1. Parents entering their info into the student's section
2. Parents reporting untaxed benefits that are not required in the worksheet
3. Parents not "signing" the FAFSA
4. Not entering a college in student's home state first (for state grant eligibility)
5. Parents reporting unemployment earnings as wages, salaries, and tips
6. Reporting the incorrect figure for Total Tax; reporting taxes withheld instead, or listing AGI there
7. Parents who go to fafsa.com
8. Not reporting rental real estate net worth in assets
9. Incorrectly reporting number of people in the household
10. Not using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool
Parents needing help with the FAFSA may call NACEE (North Alabama Center for Educational Excellence), and Marcus Crutcher and staff will be happy to help! Call 256-372-4600 for a free consultation.
