FAFSA Information

Click here to watch the video by Mott Community College explaining the step by step process on how to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). 

Create an FASA ID:  An FSA ID is a username and password that gives you access to Federal Student Aid's online systems and can serve as your legal signature. Click here: https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm

2021-2022 FAFSA form is the one that current seniors (Class of 2021) and their parents will use to apply for federal student aid for college (for 2021-22 college year).

Students/Parents will be able to file a 2021-22 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2020.

For the 2021–22 FAFSA, students (and parents) will report their 2019* tax year income information.

It is highly recommended to apply online.  The processing of paper FAFSA Forms can take 6 - 8 weeks longer!

You do not need to pay money to complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is FREE, so if a website asks you to pay to fill it out, you’re not dealing with the official FAFSA site.

updated FAFSA info

The FAFSA asks for information about you (your name, date of birth, address, etc.) and about your financial situation. Depending on your circumstances (for instance, when you filed taxes and what tax form you used), you might need to reference the following information or documents as you fill out the FAFSA:

  • Your Social Security number (it’s important that you enter it correctly on the FAFSA!)
  • Your parents’ Social Security numbers if you are a "dependent" student
  • Your driver’s license number if you have one  
  • Your Alien Registration Number if you are not a U.S. citizen


  • Federal tax information or tax returns including IRS W-2 information for you (and your spouse, if you are married), and for your parents if you are a dependent student
  • Records of your untaxed income, such as child support received, interest income, and veterans noneducation benefits, for your, and for your parents if you are dependent student
  • Information on cash, savings and checking account balances, investments, including stocks and bonds and real estate, but not including the home in which you live; and business and farm assets for you, and for your parents if you are a dependent student

*We understand that your financial information may be different now than in 2019 due to loss of a job and the pandemic. Still use the 2019 taxes, and reach out to a counselor for support. 
If you have any questions make sure your student is connected to the Class of 2021 Google Classroom for resources or reach out to Ms. Collins, the KHS College Adviser at hcollins@kearsleyschools.org
