Prior to completing the FAFSA, you and your child must each create an FSA ID. Please reference www.fsaid.ed.gov to complete this task.
Seniors and their parents should submit an online FAFSA application at www.fafsa.gov to apply for federal and state need-based programs. Please note that this is a government web site, and the submission is FREE! Other sites will attempt to charge you to submit an otherwise free application. The FAFSA will use family information (one part for the student and one part for parents) to determine the level of need for each student. This level of need, called the EFC, or Expected Family Contribution, triggers the awarding of grants (free government money) and/or loans (money you must pay back). The FAFSA application is available October 1st. Please complete the application as close to this date as possible for funds are distributed on a first-come/first serve basis.
