FAFSA® Tips for Parents
Creating an FSA ID
To apply for aid online you must apply for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID. The FSA ID is a username and password has replaced the Federal Student Aid Pin and is used to log into certain U.S. Department of Education websites. This ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents.
How to fill out the FAFSA®
The FAFSA questions ask for information about you (your name, date of birth, address, etc.) and about your financial situation. Depending on your circumstances, you might need your Social Security number, your parents’ Social Security number, your driver’s license number, and/or tax returns.
Determining Dependency Status
All applicants for federal student aid are considered either “independent” or “dependent.” Dependent students are required to include information about their parents on the FAFSA. If you have questions about your dependency status or need more information, please visit https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/dependency
