Don't forget to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
This site will take you through the steps of getting your PIN number (one for head of family and another for student) and through each step of the process. FAFSA forms completed on the web will be processed more quickly than a paper copy. There are paper copies available in the counseling center.
If your student is planning to attend college in the fall of 2017, don't hesitate to begin working on your FAFSA form now. Beginning this year, the FAFSA is available October 1st, using your previous year's tax information. If you think you will need to file an extension, you may need to complete the FAFSA with a tax estimate.
