It’s FAFSA Time

It’s FAFSA Time!

We don’t want anyone to miss out on financial aid. Our staff will assist you in completing your 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Join us from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, February 13, 2018, in our office in Old Main, Room 116. Anyone (current and prospective students attending or interested in any university) needing to complete the FAFSA is welcome.

 

How to Prepare

You will need an FSA ID to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are a dependent student, at least one parent will need an FSA ID as well. It is best to have your FSA ID before completing the FAFSA but not necessary. Apply for the FSA ID now at fsaid.ed.gov. Click HERE for more information about the FSA ID.

The 2018-19 FAFSA asks for your (and possibly your parents’) 2016 income information. You should bring the following with you:

  • Your Social Security number
  • Your parents’ Social Security numbers if you are a dependent student
  • Your driver’s license number, if you have one
  • Your Alien Registration number if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Federal tax information or tax returns including IRS W-2 information, for you (and your spouse, if you are married), and for your parents if you are a dependent student:
    • IRS 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ
    • Foreign tax return and/or
    • Tax return for Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, or Palau
  • Records of your untaxed income, such as child support received, interest income, and veterans non-education benefits, for you, and for your parents if you are a dependent student
  • Information on cash; savings and checking account balances; investments, including stocks and bonds and real estate but not including the home in which you live; and business and farm assets for you, and for your parents if you are a dependent student
