The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2019-20 is now available for completion. Find the form at www.fafsa.gov. Remember that you must complete the FAFSA EACH YEAR. The FAFSA for 2019-20 will use your income information from your 2017 federal tax returns. Both the student and parent will need to sign in using their FSAID number.
Be sure to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to bring your actual income right from your completed tax return. This helps with accuracy and saves time if your student is selected for the verification process during the year.
Returning students are able to file the FAFSA now, but we recommend that it is completed no later than April 15, 2019. So, why not complete it now and save yourself a rush in the Spring!
