Be prepared for your session by bringing the following items:

  • Official photo ID
  • List of items on To-Do List, if applicable

If you are attending to complete your FAFSA, you will need this information: 

  • FSA ID
  • Your social security number (student and parent)
  • Alien registration number, if you are not a U.S. Citizen
  • Your parents* social security number and date of birth 
  • Federal tax returns 
  • W-2's or record of money earned
  • Records of untaxed income

**2019 income/tax information if you are completing the 2021-2022 FAFSA**

Whose Income Information is Needed on the FAFSA

Your dependency status determines whose information you must report on the FAFSA. Your answers to the dependency status questions on the FAFSA will determine whether you are considered a dependent or independent student.

  • If you’re a dependent student, you will report your and your parents’ information.
  • If you’re an independent student, you will report your own information (and, if you’re married, your spouse’s).
