Financial Aid

1. Financial Aid: Apply for FSA ID

  • Go to
    (follow link for pin site—will only take a few minutes to complete!)
  • Your FSA ID# is the first step in completing the FAFSA—the form required to determine what financial assistance you will need at which ever college you attend!
  • Your parent will also need to register for the FSA ID # through the exact same process—ideally, once you have registered for your own, you can help your parent do the same!
  • Slightly different process for students/parents without a SS#—we are happy to help you with this!

2. Be aware of/begin to gather documents you will need to complete FAFSA, specifically:

  •  FAFSA ID # (your electronic signature) for you and your parents—you each need one!
  • Social Security#/Legal Resident # 
    (If you do not have either, you will complete FAFSA on paper—we can assist!)
  • You/your parents’ most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned.
    (Note: If you do not have all of this information, you can still complete your FAFSA on-time and then return to update the information. 
  • You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
  • Bank statements and records of investments (If applicable)
  • Records of untaxed income (If applicable)
