    2.) Start your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by going to fafsa.ed.gov. The student needs to fill out the majority of the FAFSA. There is a parent portion where the parent will fill out their information and tax information. Only ONE parent needs to complete this portion. 
     
            What the student will need prior to filling out the FAFSA: 
    1. Social Security Number

    ** After filing your FAFSA, the colleges that you added on your FAFSA will mail you a financial aid award letter. Please stop and see your counselor with your award letter if you need help understanding an offer, or with any questions about your award at all. 

     

    If you are taking out college loans you will have to complete 2 more steps (most colleges will prompt you to complete these 2 things):
    1. Master Promissory Note:
