FAFSA INFORMATION (SENIORS ONLY)
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opened on Oct. 1, 2017. The FAFSA is a student's application for financial aid for the 2018-2019 academic year and must be completed by students planning to go to a postsecondary institute (2-year, 4-year, and technical schools) to determine eligibility for federal, state, and institutional financial aid. A student should file a FAFSA even if the student thinks that he/she will not qualify for need-based aid. Many schools require FAFSA submission, and the FAFSA serves as a student’s application for the TN Hope Scholarship. The FAFSA application (available at FAFSA.gov) must be completed by January 16, 2018, for TN Promise applicants. Please remember that the FAFSA is FREE!! There are many internet scams which require payment to file a FAFSA. You should never have to pay for any part of this process.
Prior to completing the FAFSA, students must create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID), which is used to confirm a student's identity when accessing financial aid information and to electronically sign federal student aid documents, including the FAFSA. Dependent students will also need to have one of his/her parents create an FSA ID so that the parent may electronically sign the student's FAFSA. To create an FSA ID, please visit fsaid.ed.gov.
After submitting the FAFSA, a student should be sure that he/she receives 2 e-mails: one verifying that the FAFSA was submitted and another stating that the FAFSA was processed.
