What Information Do I Need to Fill Out the FAFSA on Nov. 15? Please complete or bring the following…

1. Your FSA ID -Parent/senior (if able, please complete prior to the event) FAFSA® Application | Federal Student Aid

·         An FSA ID is a username and password that you can use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. Each student, and one parent of each dependent student, will need an

FSA ID to complete the FAFSA process on fafsa.govWe recommend creating your FSA ID

early—even before you’re ready to complete the FAFSA form—to avoid delays in the process.

2. Your Social Security number

3. Your driver’s license number

·         If you don’t have a driver’s license, then don’t worry about this step.

4. Your 2020 tax records

·         On the 2022–23 FAFSA form, you (and your parents, as appropriate) will report your 2020 income information. You should be able to import your tax information into the FAFSA form right away using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). However, you should have your 2020 tax return and 2020 IRS W-2 available for reference. The IRS DRT is the fastest, most accurate way to input your tax return information into the FAFSA form.

5. Records of your untaxed income

·         The FAFSA questions about untaxed income may or may not apply to you; they include things like child support received, interest income, and veterans noneducation benefits. On the 2022-23 FAFSA form, you’ll report 2020 tax or calendar year information when asked these questions.

6. Records of your assets (money)

·         This section includes savings and checking account balances, as well as the value of investments such as stocks and bonds and real estate (but not the home in which your family lives).

7. List of the school(s) you are interested in attending

·         Be sure to add ANY college you’re considering, even if you haven’t applied or been accepted yet.
