Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Paper FAFSA’s are only available through download at the Federal Aid web site or by calling 1-800-4-FEDAID. About 5% of FAFSA’s are now filed by paper with the majority being filed on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Both the dependent student and parent must apply for a pin number that will serve as an electronic signature. This can be done at www.pin.ed.gov . Keep this in a safe place. It will be used every year that you apply for financial aid. People filing online can first use the FAFSA worksheet, which will be available starting in January.
You can call the Financial Aid Office at Baker College or Muskegon Community College and get help for free on filling out the Financial Aid Form. Beware of people who want to charge you for this service, or of people who promise to get you Financial Aid if you pay them to complete your form. When in doubt, call first for advice.
Go to www.FAFSA4caster.ed.gov for an early estimate of federal aid eligibility. A pin number is not required and the information can transfer directly to your FAFSA.
Additional information is available at STUDENTAID.ED.GOV .
