Financial Aid Information Night 2019
Create your Parent FSA ID - https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm
We strongly recommend you create an FSA ID, a username and password combination that allows you to sign your FAFSA® form electronically. Your FSA ID also can be used to access the myStudentAid app, sign loan contracts, and access certain information online. While you can get your FSA ID as you’re completing the FAFSA form online, getting it ahead of time and using it to begin your FAFSA form on fafsa.gov or on the myStudentAid mobile app cuts down on errors and delays.
FAFSA Application - https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa
Read IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education to see how you might benefit from federal income tax credits for education expenses.
Understand the benefits of federal student loans.
Help your child learn about the responsibilities involved in accepting a student loan by reviewing “What should I consider when taking out federal student loans?” with him or her.
Look at communications from schools to which your child sent FAFSA information. If a school has offered you or your child Direct PLUS Loans, the Federal Student Loans: Basics for Students and Federal Student Loans: Direct PLUS Loan Basics for Parents booklets might be useful to you.
Students To Do:
Work hard all the way to graduation—second-semester grades can affect scholarship eligibility.
Oct. 1st release, complete and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), at fafsa.gov, along with any other financial aid applications your chosen school(s) may require. You should submit your FAFSA® by the earliest financial aid deadline of the schools to which you are applying, usually by early February. Refer to the FAFSA: Applying for Aid
After you submit the FAFSA, you should receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) within three days to three weeks.
Review your college acceptances and compare the colleges’ financial aid offers.
Contact a school’s financial aid office if you have questions about the aid that school has offered you.
When you decide which school you want to attend, notify school of your commitment and submit any required financial deposit. Many schools require this notification and deposit by May 1.
