Time for FAFSA!

Who?

All high-school seniors planning to attend college, community college, or another school next year and who want any financial aid should fill out the FAFSA. (Students do have to be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens with social-security numbers. Parents to not have to be citizens or eligible non-citizens with social-security numbers. Students who are not eligible for the FAFSA fill out the ORSAA instead.)

What?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid

When?

ASAP. The FAFSA opened for submission yesterday (10/1/20). Some money is handed out on a first-come, first-served basis, so get going now.

Where?

First go here: fsaid.ed.gov to create your Federal Student Aid ID (FSAID). Then go here: fafsa.gov for the application.

How?

Using your 2019 tax forms and current financial information.

Why?

Even if you don’t qualify for any federal financial aid, the FAFSA might help you get other types of aid. This application is used, not only by the federal government, but also by the state government, many colleges, and some private scholarship organizations in choosing aid recipients.

Help!

South is hoping to offer a virtual FAFSA Completion Workshop. Details will come later. Meanwhile, this FAFSA Walkthrough Video by the Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority is very useful. And, of course, you can always contact me, Kim Johannsen (Johannsen_k@4j.lane.edu) (541-790-6614)
