The FAFSA is open, but you can get yourself ready!!!

    You need to have an FSA ID and so do your parents. The first step is relatively easy. It is all demographic information and both students and parents/guardians will need Social Security Numbers. If either does not have one, enter 000-00-0000 for this number.

    You can both make one by following this link: https://studentaid.gov/fsa-id/sign-in/landing

    Once there, choose "Create an Account"

    If your parent/guardian already has an account from an older sibling, they will use the same one. If you are the first one who will be completing the FAFSA, your parent or guardian needs one too. It cannot be the same account. 

    Sometimes it takes some time for the federal government to issue the accounts, so it is better to get this part done so you are ready to do the hard part in December.
