    FAFSA Instructions for Students 


    Know your social security number  

    Make sure the name on your transcript matches to name on your social security card 


    • Step I: Create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) at https://fsaid.ed.gov for the student and parent (if the parent does not have one). PLEASE write it down for safe keeping.


    • Step II: Go to https://fafsa.ed.gov. Click on Start Here and use the FSA ID you created to sign in. 


    • Step III: Once signed in you will be prompted to choose school year 2020-2021 and to create a save key—a short-term password that lets you pause and return to the form later. You and your parents can share the save key, so you can enter the first few sections, and they can continue with the trickier financial questions.


    • You’ll then be taken to the Introduction page, which offers links to some basic questions you might have before you begin: What documents do I need? (There’s a list.)  


    FAFSA sections 

    Student eligibility 

    • This is pretty basic: the name of your high school, what year in college you’ll be entering, and your parents’ level of education. You are a first-time freshman taking a technology course in high school. This pell grant does not count against future eligibility.
    • Males will be asked if they are registered with Selective Service. Check no and opt for FAFSA to register for you when you are of age. 


    School selection 

    • Here’s where you enter the names of the colleges you plan to apply to. Use the search engines by state to select your schools. Please choose William R Moore School of Technology.


    Dependency determination 

    • Colleges want to know if your parents support you or if you are an independent adult. If you are homeless or displaced, or have a child of your own, see your counselor for assistance completing this application. 


    Parent demographics 

    • You fill this FAFSA section out if you are a dependent. Aid decisions will consider your parents’ age (because older parents may need to conserve more for retirement), how many children they support, and, most important, if they will have additional children in college that year. Each of these elements effects the calculation for your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), so answer the questions carefully. For example: Older parents are expected to contribute less since they are closer to retirement. 
    • Parental contribution is divided by the number of students in college. 
    • If the parents are divorced or separated, include only the financial data of the parent with whom the student lives for the greater part of the 12 months preceding the date of the application. If that parent has remarried, the student must include that stepparent’s income and asset data as well. Note: some colleges request information on the “other” natural parent and may expect a contribution from that parent as well. 


    Financial information 

    • Now you’ve reached the heart of the FAFSA. 
    • You will need to fill in your parents’ adjusted gross income from the 1040 form, or whichever form they file. (Or your income, if you are independent.) 
    • Please use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when possible. It transfers your tax information directly to the form, saving time and eliminating the chance of a mistake and will eliminate any need to turn in hard copies of tax returns. 
    • You’ll also be asked about assets—both your parents’ and yours. In most cases, these answers will be zero/none.


    Sign and submit 

    • You made it! After you’ve finished the FAFSA’s financial section, you and your parent add your electronic signature with your FSA ID and hit submit. That’s it. 
    • Once submitted, scroll down on the confirmation page to see your Pell Grant eligibility.
