Fafsa renewal 2014-2015

  1. 1. Online School Code: 002678 Ohio residents only must add a second school code of 015298
  2. 2. 1. How will I know when it’s time to renew my FAFSA? Since you successfully submitted last year’s FAFSA online, you should receive an automatic email reminder from the Federal Processing Center reminding you that you can reapply for FAFSA renewal on the web starting on January 1 of the coming year. We will also send you a reminder. If you plan on filing taxes for 2013, we recommend you wait about 3 weeks after you file to take advantage of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool link on the FAFSA on the web.
  3. 3. 2. What is the deadline for the FAFSA? We recommend you complete your FAFSA as soon as possible (typically 3 weeks after you file your taxes) to ensure that you are considered for every type of aid possible, both from your school and the government. You should complete your 2014-15 FAFSA by April 30th.
  4. 4. 3. Where do I go for renewal of my FAFSA on the web? Go to the www.fafsa.ed.gov and click on “Returning User, Green Login Button”, and the next page enter your personal information as directed. Then select FAFSA Renewal Button
  5. 5. 4. What if I lost or forgot my PIN? No worries. At the top of the FAFSA main page you’ll see a “PIN Site” link. This will take you to a page where you can request a duplicate PIN if you’ve forgot yours. * Be aware that your PIN expires if it hasn’t been used for 18 months, in which case you will have to apply for a new one.
  6. 6. 5.What information will I have to resubmit? The renewal of FAFSA on the web does lighten the workload a bit since you can use your PIN to automatically fill in “reusable” information. However, you will have to update certain things every year, –like your or if you are considered a dependent student; your parents’ financial info, which likely has changed in the past year.
  7. 7. 6. Can you clarify the type of financial info I need to provide? According to the FAFSA government website, you’ll need your most recent W-2 forms as well as any other records of money you’ve received in the past year, as well as your most recent Federal Income Tax Return. (Based on your age and how you answer dependency questions on your FAFSA, you may need to include your parents financial information) In addition, you will have to provide your own (and, if you’re a dependent, your parents’) current bank statements as well as records of any investments.
  8. 8. 7. What happens if my FAFSA renewal is late? Submitting your FAFSA as soon as possible but no later than April 30th is the best way to ensure that you are considered for as many different types of aid as possible. New York State residents should complete their TAP application. Use TAP code 7732 for an Associate’s Program and 6732 for a Bachelor’s program.
