Tips on filling out the FAFSA

  • Your Social Security number.
  • Your driver’s license number.
  • The W-2 forms and other records of money earned from the most recent tax year (if you’re filing the 2015-16 academic year, you’ll need your 2014 income and tax returns).

  • Your parents’ most recent tax return (if you’re a dependent student).
  • Your untaxed income records.
  • Your current bank statements.

* You will need different email addresses for each of these!  We do not recommend using your school student email since it will be disabled after graduation.
