FAFSA Workshop

The 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid is now available 24 hours a day! Whether this is your first or fourth time filling out the form, the FAFSA needs to be filled out every year if you plan to attend college. Here’s what you need to know:

1. Go to https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa

 

2. Log on and create a FSA ID - Everyone who needs to provide information for the FAFSA must create an FSA ID. To create an FSA ID, contributors need their Social Security number and email address. For the 2024-25 form, anyone who needs to provide information, (student’s spouse, biological/adoptive parent, or the parent’s spouse), must have their own FSA ID.

 

3. Gather the following documents:

Social Security Number

Driver’s license number (if applicable)

Alien Registration Number (if not a US citizen)

2022 Federal income tax returns, W-2s and other records of money earned

Bank and investment statements

Records of untaxed income

 

Be patient! There is still plenty of time to apply for federal aid. The SHSU filing priority date is March 15.
