FAFSA Requirements

To properly prepare yourself for filling out a Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for a Pell Grant, loan, scholarship or other student aid, you should get a worksheet and use it as your sample form.

It is a good idea that you gather all the required information and documents and have them in hand before beginning the application and follow the directions carefully.

Completing the FAFSA takes time, so give yourself plenty of time to complete the whole application.

Listed below is some of the required information that you are going to need when filling out your FAFSA:

  • Your social security number
  • Your parent's social security numbers if you are providing parent information.
  • Your driver's license number if you have one
  • Your federal tax returns if you are employed
  • Your spouse's tax returns if you are married
  • Your parent's federal tax returns if they are helping you qualify
  • Employment information if you are employed
  • Your parents business information if they are self employed
  • Your parents savings and investments information
  • Your parents and or stepparents birthdates.
  • If you or your parents are collecting Social Security benefits, welfare benefits, or veteran's benefits, records need to be shown.
  • If you are not a citizen, you need to provide your alien registration number.
  • List of schools that you have attended from middle school through high school and any college that you have completed..
  • Net worth of property you or your parents own including homes, farms, businesses, etc.
  • If you served in the military and are receiving veteran's education benefits, how long will you receive them.
  • If you are receiving child support, list amount for all children
  • Show tax exempt income
  • Show all other untaxed income
  • Show any grants or scholarships aid reported to the IRS

The above mentioned items will be found on the FAFSA forms along with other questions about you and your parents current financial situations. As stated above, try to have as much of this information in hand before you get started.

When filling out the FAFSA application, you can never be too prepared.
