Why wait to submit your FAFSA application? Work one-on-one with a Financial Aid Counselor to create an FSA ID, submit the FAFSA application, and ask questions. 

The 2017­–2018 FAFSA is available on October 1, 2016. You can submit it online at www.fafsa.gov. To speed up the FAFSA process, get prepared early. Here is what you’ll need to fill out the FAFSA:

  1. Your FSA ID* — In order to sign your FAFSA electronically, you will need an FSA ID. You can help to prevent processing delays by getting an FSA ID before you begin the FAFSA.
