FASFA STUDENT AID
FASFA is a common misspelling for FAFSA.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (known as the FAFSA) is a form that can be filled out annually by current and anticipating university students (both undergraduate and graduate) and sometimes their parents in the United States to determine their eligibility for federal student financial aid (including Pell grants, Stafford loans, PLUS loans, and work-study programs). In addition, most states and schools use information from the FAFSA to award non-federal aid.
I have already submitted a FAFSA for this school year. Can I submit another FAFSA using FAFSA on the Web?
No. If you have already submitted a FAFSA (for instance, your school already submitted an electronic application for you, you submitted a paper FAFSA, or you filed for aid using FAFSA on the Web), do not submit another application.
I submitted two applications for the same year. What will happen?
We use only the first application we receive. All other applications are deleted from our system.
To make corrections to your application, view your Student Aid Report (SAR). You will receive it either by e-mail or by mail. The SAR includes instructions for making corrections.
Can I have someone else fill out my FAFSA for me?
Yes. If you have someone else fill out your FAFSA for you (not including one of your parents or your spouse), you should make sure they list themselves as a “preparer” at the end of your FAFSA.
A preparer should never ask for your PIN, apply for a PIN on your behalf, or sign your FAFSA using your PIN. The security of your PIN is important because it can be used to:
Remember, the FAFSA is a completely FREE application. If you need help filling it out, there are many free tools available to help you. You don’t need to pay anyone to help you fill out your FAFSA.
The best place to look for help filling out your FAFSA is at your school’s financial aid office. If you need help with a specific question, click on “NEED HELP?” located at the bottom of every FAFSA page.
