FAFSA Days

Why Should I Attend?

Applying for financial aid for education beyond high school can be confusing, especially with the paperwork that is required for any federal and NJ financial aid. FAFSA Days are a free program that helps families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form that is required to apply for federal and New Jersey financial assistance programs.

For more information on the FAFSA, visit the FAFSA Web site: www.fafsa.gov.

Who is Eligible?

In order to qualify for any federal student financial aid (grants, loans, work-study, or other forms of assistance), applicants must:

  • Be a citizen or eligible noncitizen of the United States with a valid Social Security Number
  • Have a high school diploma or a General Education Development (GED) certificate or pass an approved "ability to benefit" test
  • Enroll in an eligible program as a regular student seeking a degree or certificate
  • Register (or have registered) for Selective Service, if you are a male between the ages of 18-25

What should I bring?

Parents and students should bring their tax information and/or last pay stub from the 2013 tax year in order to complete the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form allows families to estimate their financial information, which can be corrected after their taxes have been completed.

All information will be kept private and confidential and will not be used for any purpose other than helping the students and families apply for financial aid.

Please bring the following:

  • Your Social Security Number (can be found on Social Security card)
  • Your driver's license (if any)
  • Your W-2 Forms for 2013 or your last pay stub from 2013
  • Your (and your spouse’s if you are married) 2013 Federal Income Tax Return. If you haven’t completed your taxes yet, please bring the 2012 return(s) 
  • If you are dependent, your parent’s 2013 Federal Income Tax Return. If they haven’t completed their taxes yet, please bring the 2012 return
  • Untaxed income records for 2013 — Social Security, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, welfare, or veterans benefits records
  • Your current bank statements
  • Your current business and investment mortgage information, business and farm records, stock, bond, and other investment records
  • Your alien registration card (if you are not a U.S. citizen)

What if I'm not sure whether I'm going to college?

By filling out the FAFSA there is no obligation to attend, however, by completing the FAFSA form deadlines will not be missed if the student decides to apply to college later in the year.
