Students planning on using financial aid to help pay for college must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form. The 2018–19 FAFSA form is available on Oct. 1, 2017. You should fill it out as soon as possible on the official government site, fafsa.gov.
To make it easier to complete the FAFSA form it’s best to gather what you need ahead of time. Here is what you’ll need to fill out your FAFSA.
The 7 items you need to register for the FAFSA are:
1. Your FAFSA ID
2. Your Social Security number*
3. Your driver’s license number
4. Your 2016 tax records*
5. Records of your untaxed income*
6. Records of your assets (money)*
7. List of the school(s) you are interested in attending
It is best if the student athlete and parent(s) complete the FASFA together.
