What Parents Need to Do


  • Obtain an FSA ID >>
  • Along with your student, complete the 2020-21 FAFSA and sign with the FSA ID. You can file the 2020-21 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2019.
  • Important: Proofread your personal data carefully. Errors, particularly on social security numbers, can lead to processing delays and complications.
  • If selected for verification (your student will be notified), submit verification documents as requested.
  • If additional funds are needed, check with a student financial services advisor about obtaining  supplemental loans.
