Applying for Financial Aid can feel like a complicated process, but we’re here to make it easy. Our advisors are available to help you understand all of your options, answer application questions, and identify scholarship opportunities.

We understand that the process can feel overwhelming, and you may hesitate to provide sensitive information – we assure you that all information shared is confidential and is only used to help your child receive the maximum educational benefits they can secure.

FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The application is required for students seeking government aid to pay for college. The U.S. Department of Education uses the form to try to calculate how much a family can contribute to pay for school. Colleges use this as a starting point to determine how much financial support a student will need to attend.

FAFSA is required for all kinds of financial aid. The federal government uses the FAFSA to determine whether your student is eligible for federal student aid, including Pell Grants, student loans, and work-study. Your student may also be eligible for state funding or private scholarships – the FAFSA is also needed for these options.

Our Financial Aid Advisors will answer your questions, identify scholarship opportunities, and help you to see how your student may qualify for financial assistance. Having this conversation is critical to your student’s ability to secure financial aid.

Gather all the information you’ll need for the appointment. Below is a list of things you’ll need and a downloadable form as an additional resource.

To fill out the FAFSA, you will need this information for yourself and your student:

  • FSA ID. An FSA ID is a username and password for fafsa.gov and StudentLoans.gov.
  • Social Security Number
  • Driver’s license or State ID number (this information is optional on the FAFSA)
  • Most currently filed federal income taxes (also called 1040s) along with your W2s. If you are married but don’t file jointly, you will need to bring information for both

Financial Aid FAQs

You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers. We’ve been helping families find ways to pay for college for over 55 years. In that time – we have heard it all!  Here is a list of the most asked questions and our answers.

FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The application is required for students seeking government aid to pay for college. The U.S. Department of Education uses the form to try to calculate how much a family can contribute to pay for school. Colleges use this as a starting point to determine how much financial support a student will need to attend.

Your student may also be eligible for state funding or private scholarships – the FAFSA is also needed for these options.

The FAFSA form will ask you for sensitive Social Security numbers and tax information. The form will also ask how many people you live with and who you support financially. Sharing this kind of information can feel uncomfortable, but it is needed to determine how much financial help is needed for college. The Social Security numbers are unique identifiers and guarantee that the FAFSA form is yours, and not someone else’s.

Absolutely, as long as your student is a U.S. citizen, or a non-citizen allowed to apply for aid. If you are undocumented, you can use your ITIN number. Federal law protects the privacy of everyone who fills out the FAFSA form. You can feel confident that the information is used only for the purposes of determining financial aid.

In most cases, parents are not required to repay federal loans – the student who uses the funding is responsible for repayment. The exception to this is the Parent Plus loan, and our team can tell you more about this at your financial aid appointment.  It is important for parents to help their students complete the FAFSA as most funding sources rely on the FAFSA to determine eligibility for aid.
