Here’s what you need to bring to fill out the FAFSA:

  • Student’s & Parent’s Social Security Number.
  • Student’s driver’s license (if they have one).
  • Family’s current bank statements.
  • Student’s alien registration card (if not a U.S. citizen).
  • Student’s 2015 W-2 Forms (or 12/31/15 pay-stub) and any other records of money earned.
  • Student’s (& spouse’s, if applicable) 2015 Federal Income Tax Return, or most recent IRS Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ.
  • Parent’s 2015 Federal Income Tax Return (if student is dependent for federal aid purposes) or most recent tax return and 12/31/2015 pay stub.
  • Family’s 2015 untaxed income records – Social Security, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, or veteran’s benefits records.
    Note: If you have not filed your 2015 taxes yet, you can still fill out the FAFSA based on last years income and update it after taxes are filed. Not having filed taxes should not deter anyone from filing the FAFSA.
