If your child is planning to attend any college for the 2020-2021 school year, they will want to fill out a FAFSA application for federal financial aid.
The deadline for filing the FAFSA is June 30, 2021 but, the earlier you apply, the more funds you may be eligible to receive.
We had several students who applied this year but did not list a social security number on their FAFSA application. If you do not list a social security number, you can still apply but you will receive a paper document that must be signed and returned. You will not be able to sign paperwork online without a valid social security number on file.
Attached is information to help you complete the FAFSA. Should you have questions, you can contact your child’s school counselor or the financial office at the college your child plans to attend.
