Now is the time to begin the financial Aid process.
On October 1st the FAFSA application became  available to students entering college next fall. 
FAFSA is the pathway to obtain federal and state grants, low interest student loans and work study opportunities.

The first step you will need to take is to get and FSA ID for you and a parent This is how:
What is an FSA ID?
An FSA ID is a username and password that you must use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. Your FSA ID identifies you as someone who has the right to access your own personal information on ED websites such as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) site at fafsa.gov. It’s important to understand that the student and the parent may not share an FSA ID: Your FSA ID is your signature, so it has to be unique to you. If you are a parent of a dependent student, you will need your own FSA ID if you want to sign your child's FAFSA electronically. If you have more than one child attending college, you can use the same FSA ID to sign all applications, but each child must have his or her own. Please note: Each FSA ID user must have a unique mobile phone number and/or email address. Your FSA ID is used to sign legally binding documents electronically. It has the same legal status as a written signature.
How do I get an FSA ID?
You can create an FSA ID when logging into certain ED websites: www.fafsa.ed.gov
The FSA ID process consists of three main steps:
1.	Enter your log-in information.
•	Provide your email address, a unique username, and a password.
2.	Enter your personal information.
•	Provide your name, date of birth, and Social Security number (SSN).
•	Enter your mailing address.
•	Select whether or not you would like to register your mobile phone number for account recovery using text messages.
•	Provide your mobile phone number.
•	Select your language preference.
•	For security purposes, complete the four challenge questions and answers.
3.	Submit your FSA ID information.
•	Agree to the terms and conditions.
•	Verify your mobile phone number. (This is optional, but helpful. This verification allows you to retrieve your username or reset your password without answering challenge questions.)
•	Verify your email address. (This is optional, but helpful. By verifying your email address, you can use your email address as your username when logging into certain ED websites. Also, we’ll be able to notify you by email of changes to your account. This verification also allows you to retrieve your username or reset your password without answering challenge questions.)
You will need to begin gathering the following documents to be able to complete the FAFSA form:
Copies of Federal Tax returns filed for the year ending 2016, yours and the parent(s) you live with.
If you and/or your parents did not file a federal tax return you will need to submit a form 4506T to prove this to your financial aid office
Your birthday and social security number/Parents birthday and social security number
