CMU Trip

Please join us for help completing your 2018/2019 FAFSA

Get Prepared Early! Here is what you’ll need to fill out the FAFSA:

If you’re a dependent student, you will need certain information for your parents as well; I’ve indicated each of those items with an asterisk (**) below.

1. Your FSA ID**

An FSA ID is a username and password that you must use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites, including

  • Anyone who plans to fill out the 2018–19 FAFSA should create an FSA ID as soon as possible.
  • If you are required to provide parent information on your FAFSA, your parent should create an FSA ID too.
  • Because your FSA ID is equivalent to your signature, parents and students each need to create their own FSA IDs using separate email addresses. Parents should not create an FSA ID for their child and vice versa.
  • In some situations, you may need to wait up to three days to use your FSA ID after creating it. If you want to avoid FAFSA delays, create your FSA ID now.

2. Your Social Security number**

You can find the number on your Social Security card. If you don’t have access to it, and don’t know where it is, ask your parent or legal guardian or get a new or replacement Social Security card from the Social Security Administration. If you are not a U.S. citizen, but meet Federal Student Aid’s basic eligibility requirements, you’ll need your Alien Registration number.

3. Your driver’s license number

If you don’t have a driver’s license, then don’t worry about this step.

4. Your 2016 tax records**

Beginning with the 2018–19 FAFSA, you will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year.

  • On the 2018–19 FAFSA, you (and your parents, as appropriate) will report your 2016 income information, rather than your 2016 income information.
  • Since you’ll already have filed your 2016 taxes by the time the FAFSA launches, you’ll be able to import your tax information into the FAFSA right away using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. (No more logging back in to update after filing taxes!)
  • You do not have the option to report your 2016 tax information. We understand that for some families, 2016 income doesn’t accurately reflect your current financial situation. If you have experienced a loss in income since the 2016 tax year, you should complete the FAFSA with the info it asks for (2016), and then contact the Financial Aid Office to explain and document the change in income. They have the ability to assess your situation and make adjustments to your FAFSA.
