Have questions about filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)? We have answers, plus tips designed to save you time and stress.
Note: The 2020-2021 financial aid year begins Friday, May 15.

While you are online filling out your FAFSA, you can choose to use the new IRS Data Retrieval feature. We encourage you to use this process in order to simplify the Verification process.
If you are selected for Verification, you must complete the Verification process. If you do not finish the Verification process, we cannot calculate your financial aid eligibility. Get more information on our
