Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the primary financial aid application needed to be considered for federal and state financial aid. The FAFSA will ask for personal and financial information of the student and his/her parents if the student is considered to be a dependent student.

The FAFSA may be submitted online or via U.S. mail. The processing of the FAFSA may take up to ten business days from the date of electronic submission or may take up to 4 to 8 weeks from the receipt date by the U.S. Department of Education if sent via U.S. mail. For more information on the FAFSA, please visit the following website: www.fafsa.gov or for the paper application (submitted via U.S. Mail), click here.

If you plan to submit your FAFSA online, the student and his/her parent (if applicable) are required to use an FSA ID, made up of a username and password.  The FSA ID is used to confirm your identity when accessing your financial aid information and electronically sign your FAFSA and federal student aid documents.
To create an FSA ID, please visit the following website: https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm.
If you need assistance completing or submitting the FAFSA, please contact the College of the Sequoias’ Financial Aid Office.
