Filing the FAFSA

The Office of Student Financial Planning encourages all students to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  By filing the FAFSA, a student ensures consideration for all federal, state and institutional financial aid programs.  The FAFSA application is available on the Department of Education's web site and can be filed for any award year after October 1 of the appropriate year (filing for the 2017-2018 school year begins October 1, 2016).  The FAFSA web site also links to the Department of Education FSA ID web site.  By creating a FSA ID , a student (and the student's parents if applicable) can complete the FAFSA application entirely via the web. 

Filing the online FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov is the easiest option. If you cannot file online, phone the Office of Student Financial Planning or your local high school guidance office.
