FAFSA INFORMATION

Please see Ms. Clarissa Sandoval in the Counseling Office if you need assistance or have questions on how to complete your FAFSA.

Seniors, please remember that the FAFSA is always free to complete.

There have been reports of at least one fake website scam that is charging students for their FAFSA Application.  The FAFSA website is the ONLY site that you should be using to complete your FAFSA.

Also, remember when you are completing your FAFSA to select the "2020-2021" application option.  You are requesting funding for next school year, not this school year.  

Step 1 is the completion of your FSA ID. This serves as your electronic signature to submit your FAFSA.  Seniors and their Parent/Guardian each need to create their own FSA ID.  For information about the FSA ID or to create your FSA ID now, go to FAFSA ID.

Helpful information from Big Future regarding financial aid and completing your FAFSA: Financial Aid 101

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.

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".
