  • FAFSA opens in October 1, 2021 and, has a priority date that varies from college to college.
  • File your FAFSA as close as possible to the start date.
  • Most institutions offer financial aid on a first- come, first-serve basis so the earlier you complete the FAFSA, the better chances you have with your college scholarships and grants.

Please bring along the following to complete your FAFSA:

  • Your FSA ID (Not a requirement)
  • You and your parent(s) or guardian(s) 2020 Tax Return(s)
  • Your Social Security Number
  • A list of the colleges that you are interested in, to add to your FAFSA
Time: 6:00 PM- 7:00 PM

FSA ID Instructions

To save time during the FAFSA night we recommend that you create your own FSA ID in advance. The FSA ID is a username and password that gives you the unique benefit of logging into your Federal Student Aid account. You may use this link to do so https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm

Please follow links below for videos and instructions on how to create your FSA ID.
