We Are Here to Help!
FA Help Desk
In Preparation for Your First Meeting:
1. Get your support team involved from the start!
Even if you’re an independent student, having your parents or loved ones with you will help make the process easier.
2. If you haven’t already, set up an FSA ID.
You can visit www.studentaid.gov to start your FAFSA application.
3. Complete your FAFSA at least three days before your meeting with your financial aid officer.
It takes three business days for our office to receive a copy of your FAFSA. Be sure to use the correct school code!

4. Come prepared!
If you are a dependent, have your parents bring their signed 2018 and 2019 federal tax returns and W2’s when they join you at your meeting. If you are an independent student, have your 2018 and 2019 signed federal tax returns and W2’s available, as well as your spouse’s if you are married.
