Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

For classes starting between April 1st 2016 and March 31st, 2017, complete the 2016-2017 FAFSA

For classes starting between 4/1/16 and 3/31/17, complete the 2016-2017 FAFSA

Prior to filling out the FAFSA, you will need to go to the FAFSA PIN website to apply for a PIN (personal identification number).  If you were born after December 31, 1992, you are considered a dependent for financial aid purposes and one of your parents must apply for a PIN as well.

Once you have your PIN, and  your parents have theirs (if you were born after December 31, 1992), gather the following documents to complete your FAFSA online:

  • Your Social Security card

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

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

  • Your 2015 W-2 forms and other records of money earned

  • Your 2015 Federal Income Tax Return (1040, 1040A, 1040EZ)

  • Your parents’ 2015 Federal Income Tax Return (if you are a dependent student)

  • Your 2015 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

  • Federal School : 015765

  • SOC Code: 51-9070 (Jewelers and Precious Stone & Metal Workers)

It is highly recommended that students (and their parents) use the FAFSA IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
