It's that time again; time to file your FAFSA!

Starting January 1, 2015, the Department of Education's FAFSA website will be ready for students to complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA. Items needed to complete the FAFSA application include:

  • Social Security Number
  • Driver's License Number
  • 2014 W-2's Forms
  • 2014 Federal Income Tax Return

If you are a dependent student you will also need your parent's 2014 financial information (2014 W-2 forms and Federal Income Tax Return).

If you or your parents will not complete your tax return until a later time, do not wait to file the FAFSA. The FAFSA can be completed using estimated tax information and be updated once the tax return has been completed. For those that have their taxes filed, it is recommended that you use the FAFSA-IRS Data Retrieval process if possible. This process will become available to use beginning February 2015. This process is an easy and secure way to obtain tax information needed on the FAFSA from the IRS directly, allowing you to complete the FAFSA faster and more accurately.
