FAFSA
This link will take you directly to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Filling out the FAFSA is mandatory to qualify for ALL federal aid as well as some institutional, state and local scholarship funding. Students and parents must each apply for a FAFSA ID before filling out any paperwork. It will take approximately two to four days to receive your ID through email. Once you have an ID, you can access the FAFSA. 

Students applying to college for the Fall of 2017 and after, may access the FAFSA in October of their senior year. This is a CHANGE from years past. These students and parents may use their 2015 taxes to file the FAFSA.
