Free Application for Federal Student Aid will fund your community college, trade school, or college education after high school.

APS FAFSA File to Fuel Your Future

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will help fund your education after high school. 

The Basics

  • Complete your FAFSA starting October 1st of your senior year.
  • The earlier you complete the FAFSA the better. 
  • The process can seem overwhelming. Have this information available to make the process as smooth as possible:
    • FSA ID (for you and at least one parent)
    • Your Social Security Number (and your parents' SSN)
    • Your Driver's License Number (if you have one)
    • 2016 federal tax information (for you and your parents)
    • Any other untaxed income information
    • You can also complete this FAFSA worksheets in advance to ensure you have all the information you need.

I've filed my FAFSA, now what?

  • You will receive information by email (the email you gave for your FSA ID).
  • This information will share estimated funds.
  • Read any and all emails you receive from FAFSA/Federal Student Aid, and any college/schools you are applying to. These emails may request additional information to confirm your financial aid needs. 
  • Stay in communication with the financial aid office at the college/school you hope to attend. They may request additional information to confirm your financial aid needs. 
  • You will receive a Financial Aid Award Letter from your college/school with the financial aid (scholarships, grants, and loans) available to you. Remember: You can accept or refuse any aid (you can refuse loans if you do not want or need them).
