New Academic Year – New Financial Aid Cycle

For need-based financial aid, a FAFSA must be completed each academic year. For merit-based aid, a FAFSA is not required, but we encourage you to file the form in case you qualify for need-based aid. (If your parents need to know about financial aid, forward this email to them.)

if possible, file your 2013 federal tax return prior completing your FAFSA. If you won't be submitting your taxes until after April 1, then complete your FAFSA using estimated information. Be sure to return to update your income information.
Log into www.fafsa.ed.gov using your federal PIN.
number 3 Follow all the steps to update the information that was previously filed for the 2013-2014 year.
number 4 Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to electronically move the income information from your federal tax returns to your FAFSA. This could save you several steps down the road and guarantees that your data is accurate.
number 5 Be sure to check your mail and your Capital email address for any follow-up requests that we might send. About 30 percent of our students will need to submit additional documentation after the FAFSA is received.
number 6 Submit any requested documents quickly so your financial aid is not delayed.
number 7 Ask us for help if you aren't sure how to file your FAFSA or have questions. We want to make sure this process does not become overwhelming.
