FAFSA and CSS Applications Opened October 1st

This is a reminder that the applications for the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Financial Aid) and the CSS Profile opened on Saturday, October 1st. The FAFSA application can be found here.

In order to electronically sign and submit your FAFSA, both the student and their parent(s) will need to obtain a FSA ID number. The Counseling Staff recommends getting your FSA ID number prior to starting the FAFSA. Much of the information for your FAFSA will populate from the information submitted for your FSA ID.

The tab to get an FSA ID is found on the same page as the FAFSA. If you need assistance completing your FAFSA, College Goal Colorado will be hosting workshops on Sunday, November 13th from 1 pm to 3 pm at various locations. The locations will be posted soon on their website here.

The CSS Profile is also required by some schools. You can access information on how to complete the Profile at this link. A comprehensive list of the schools that require the CSS profile can also be found on this page.

Best of luck to all seniors as you continue to apply to colleges and for financial aid!
