FAFSA Online

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the U.S. Department of Education

FAFSA Online : Maximize Your Federal Financial Aid:-
To qualify for the maximum amount of federal financial aid each year, including loans, students must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the U.S. Department of Education annually. Submitting this vital financial aid form determines your eligibility for federal financial aid as well as scholarships, grants, and other aid opportunities. While not required, it is strongly recommended that all college-bound students complete one.

FAFSA ALERTS: FAFSA Deadlines: Submit 2008-2009 Corrections on the Web forms by midnight Central Daylight time, September 21, 2009

Submit 2009-2010 FAFSA on the Web Applications by midnight Central Daylight time, June 30, 2010.

State deadlines are normally much earlier than Federal deadlines. To find your state's deadline, select state deadlines.

Pay close attention to deadlines! Ask your school about their definition of an application deadline - whether it is the receipt date and time or the process date and time of the application.

Federal Student Aid considers a FAFSA’s receipt date and time to be when the FAFSA/correction is submitted successfully.

TIP: When you submit your FAFSA, be sure to print out the confirmation page and keep it for your records. It contains a confirmation number with the exact date and time (Central Standard Time) the form was received.

Note: Transactions must be completed and accepted by midnight to meet the deadline. If you wait too long to submit your application and it is rejected, you may miss your school’s deadline.

  1. Your Social Security Number - SSN -(can be found on Social Security card)
  2. Your W-2 Forms and other records of money earned

About 80% of the data on the FAFSA comes from the IRS 1040, so the next step you'll need to do to ensure that you get the most amount of aid is to complete an IRS 1040, having it already filled out and optimized will make the FAFSA so much easier. Make sure you have your 2006 tax year income pay stubs and work documents handy.
