The 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available on January 1, 2013.  In order to meet our February 15th deadline, use estimated income and tax information. Later, you can make corrections to your FAFSA after you file your 2012 federal income tax return with the IRS.

First, retrieve your Federal PIN Number

You must have your Federal PIN number available to complete the FAFSA online. If you do not know your PIN number, go to the Federal Student Aid PIN website to register for your initial PIN or to retrieve your existing PIN.

Then, file the FAFSA on the Web

  1. Go online to www.fafsa.gov
  2. Do not delay submission of your FAFSA beyond February 15th. Use estimated income and tax information on your FAFSA if your actual tax return has not been filed.
  3. Print the FAFSA on the Web Confirmation page once you have completed your application and keep it with your records. The confirmation number is proof that your FAFSA was submitted to the processor.
  4. Make corrections to your processed FAFSA after your tax return is filed - use the "IRS Data Retrieval Tool" to transfer your tax information onto your FAFSA.
