Great Advice for Parents by Inceptia 2021

Start the FAFSA TIP: If you are the parent/guardian, read 8 Easy Steps for Parents Completing the FAFSA form.

• If you are the student: Click “I am the student.” Enter your FSA ID username and password, and then click “Next.” • If you are the parent: Click “I am a parent, preparer, or student from a Freely Associated State.” Provide the student’s name, Social Security number, and date of birth, and click “Next.”

Choose whether you are the student or the parent on the first page of the FAFSA form.

Choose which FAFSA form you’d like to complete:

• 2021–22 FAFSA form if you will be attending college between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022. • 2022–23 FAFSA form if you will be attending college between July 1, 2022, and June 30, 2023. • Both: If you will be attending college during both time periods and haven’t completed your 2021–22 FAFSA form yet, complete that first, wait one to three days until it processes , then go back in and complete the 2022–23 FAFSA form. TIP: If you are given the option to complete a “renewal” FAFSA form, choose that option. When you choose to renew your FAFSA form, your demographic information from the previous year will roll over into your new application, saving you some time.
