Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA)

January 2, 2009 was the start date for applying for the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2009-2010 college school year.

PIN Registration for FAFSA: In order to register for FAFSA online, you must get a PIN number. It is pretty straightforward, however there are written instructions on the PIN Application page. The FAFSA folks provide you with answers to frequently asked questions.

Expected Family Contribution (EFC) Calculator: The EFC Calculator is used to calculate financial need and to estimate your student financial aid. This is a free service. They do not retain any record of the information you submit using this form, and have taken steps to ensure your privacy. Please use it as a sample of what you might be expected to pay for your child(ren) to attend college.
