WE’VE PUT TOGETHER THESE 3 EASY STEPS TO GET YOU STARTED:

STEP 1

Create your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID.
Here is a helpful handout to walk you through the steps in creating your ID. The student needs one, as well as one parent of a dependent student.

STEP 2

Gather all the information you need.
INvestEd has created a FAFSA Checklist to help you identify what you’ll need, and a place to write down your FSA ID.

STEP 3

File your application.
A critical piece is providing accurate tax information which most filers are able to transfer using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool which is located inside the FAFSA itself.
