Got FAFSA? It's FAFSA Time Again!
- Be sure your family knows you’ll need their Tax Return & W-2, Social Security Statement, or budget letter as soon as possible.
- If you (the student) made more than $6,200 during 2015, you must file taxes (The 1040EZ is EZ to complete!)
- If your family is filing taxes late, simply go into your “old” 2015-2016 FAFSA before the middle of February and enter the same amounts into the new 2016-2017 FAFSA as estimates—you MUST remember to update later when your family’s 2015 taxes are complete. If you are away at college, as soon as your family’s taxes or other records are complete make arrangements to get a copy so you can do FAFSA. (Be sure you have permission to use your parent’s PIN.)
- You will need to create an FSA ID for you and a parent / guardian. This is similar to, but different from the old FAFSA Pin.
- If you have difficulty, go to the financial aid office at your college; they will help you. The FAFSA Hotline provides excellent help and can be reached at night and on Saturday. Or you can contact the SLJ College Office for help! (Email Ms. Levy-Moldovan at email@example.com or Ms. LaCavalla at firstname.lastname@example.org)
