  • FAFSA opens in October 1, 2021 and, has a priority date that varies from college to college.
  • File your FAFSA as close as possible to the start date.
  • Most institutions offer financial aid on a first- come, first-serve basis so the earlier you complete the FAFSA, the better chances you have with your college scholarships and grants.

Please bring along the following to complete your FAFSA:

  • Your FSA ID (Not a requirement)
  • You and your parent(s) or guardian(s) 2020 Tax Return(s)
