Tips for Applying for FAFSA On-line


1. You (and your parents, if applicable) will need to create your federal PIN numbers at www.pin.ed.gov .When you create the PIN for the first time it will take 3 days for it to become active. Your PIN must be active for you to electronically complete, sign and submit your FASFA.

2. Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov  to begin your 2014-15 FASFA. Do not use FAFSA.com.

• Your 2013 W-2 Form, final paystub from 2013 and other records of money earned
• Copies of your (and your spouse's, if you are married) 2013 Federal Income Tax Return - IRS Form 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ.
•  Your parents' 2013 Federal Income Tax Return (if you are a dependent student)
• Your 2013 untaxed income records - Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, welfare, or veterans benefits records
