The FAFSA asks for information about you (your name, date of birth, address, etc.) and about your financial situation. Depending on your circumstances (for instance, when you filed taxes and what tax form you used), you might need to reference the following information or documents as you fill out the FAFSA:

  • Your Social Security number (it’s important that you enter it correctly on the FAFSA!)
  • Your parents’ Social Security numbers if you are a "dependent" student
  • Your driver’s license number if you have one  
  • Your Alien Registration Number if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Federal tax information or tax returns including IRS W-2 information for you (and your spouse, if you are married), and for your parents if you are a dependent student
  • Records of your untaxed income, such as child support received, interest income, and veterans noneducation benefits, for your, and for your parents if you are dependent student
  • Information on cash, savings and checking account balances, investments, including stocks and bonds and real estate, but not including the home in which you live; and business and farm assets for you, and for your parents if you are a dependent student

You do not need to pay money to complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is FREE, so if a website asks you to pay to fill it out, you’re not dealing with the official FAFSA site. Please use the website link below to access the 2018-19 FAFSA starting on October 1, 2017.
