Financial Aid Tips

I just finished the financial aid process. Here are some tips:

Complete your taxes as soon as possible, and you should stress to your parents to do the same. Apply for a pin from FAFSA and have your parents do the same, so you can electronically sign your FAFSA. You can apply for a pin before you ever fill out the FAFSA. Submit the FAFSA as early as possibly. Keep up with all of the rules for your school's financial aid process. Some schools require your parent's tax info even if you are normally considered an independent student by FAFSA standards. Each school requires different paperwork. Make extra copies of your tax form and of your parent's tax forms just in case the school asks for a copy. Then, you already have an extra set ready to mail off.
