Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)



For courses starting between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020, complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa.

Prior to filling out the FAFSA, you will need to go to the FSA ID website www.studentaid.gov/fsaid to apply for an FSA ID. If you were born after 31 December 1998, you are considered a dependent for financial aid purposes and one of your parents must apply for an FSA ID as well.

Once you have an FSA ID, and your parents have theirs (if you were born after 31 December 1998), get the following documents together to complete your FAFSA online:

  • Your Social Security card

  • Your Alien Registration or Permanent Resident card (if you are not a US Citizen)

  • Your driver’s licence (if you have one)

  • Your 2017 W-2 forms and other records of money earned

  • Your 2017 Federal Income Tax Return (1040, 1040A, 1040EZ)

  • Your parents’ 2017 Federal Income Tax Return (if you are a dependent student)

  • Your 2017 untaxed income records

  • Your current bank statements

  • Your business and investment records

Once you have gathered the information necessary to complete your FAFSA, go to https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa.
