Completing the FAFSA

*Information taken from the FAFSA website* 

If this is your Senior year and you are planning on attending college, community college a technical school, or using A+ money, completing the FAFSA is a must.  The FAFSA form is the application you will use to apply for federal student aid programs offered by the U.S. Department of Education. Completing and submitting the FAFSA form is free, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to help pay for college or a technical school. Students may complete the FAFSA beginning October 1st

Before you can complete the FAFSA you and a parent must each create your own FSA ID. This can be done at www.StudentAid.gov/fsaid.  Your FSA ID has the same legal status as a written signature and is used to sign legally binding documents electronically. Do not share your FSA ID with anyone.  In order to create a FSA ID you will need your: 
  • First and last name (must match exactly what is on your social security number card)
  • Date of birth
  • Social security number 
  • Email address (email address cannot be shared or used for multiple FSA IDs


Once you have your FSA ID you are ready to apply for financial aid you will need to go to fafsa.gov.  

A very handy document that you can use to help you through this process can be found at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/sites/default/files/2018-19-completing-fafsa.pdf

We will be hosting a financial aid workshop for parents and students on October 17th at 6:00 p.m. This will be in conjunction with Parent/Teacher Conferences.  If you have your FSA ID (parent and student) and bring your 2017 tax returns and W2's for yourself and your student you will even have time to sit down with a financial aid specialist and complete the FAFSA.
