FAFSA TIPS

 

  • Make sure you are going to the FAFSA.gov website and never pay money to submit the FAFSA which is FREE.
  • You will be using your 2018 taxes so make sure you have a copy of parent and student taxes (if applicable) and W-2s before you start the application. See the image below for other documents you may need.
  • Try to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. Schools have priority deadlines and those are the dates they will start processing awards. Students who have their applications in by those dates, will be considered for the maximum amount of aid.
  • Helpful information from Big Future regarding financial aid and completing your FAFSA: Financial Aid 101

Many students and parents ask which parents information should be included on the FAFSA. Below is a graphic that will help determine "Who is my parent".
