The FAFSA form is now open. Review our FAFSA Simplification page for further details.

Admitted students interested in receiving a need-based financial aid estimate prior to FAFSA data being released, should complete the CSS Profile.

Filing the FAFSA is a critical step in getting the money you need to attend college, and we are here to support you through this process.

Here’s a checklist of everything you and your parent need to fill out, sign and submit the FAFSA

  • A FSA ID. Your FSA ID allows you to log in to your account, sign the FAFSA and make changes or add schools. You and your parent must create separate FSA IDs. Create this first!
  • You and your parent’s Social Security or Alien Registration number. Here’s what to do if your parent doesn’t have a Social Security number.
  • All contributors must provide consent for the IRS to share your data in order to receive federal aid
  • Bank statement
  • If applicable, other records of money earned, and records of investments and untaxed income

Check out the FAFSA YouTube channel for step-by-step instructions on creating an FSA ID and filling out the form.
