Completing Financial Aid Application Forms
For the 2015-2016 academic year, you will need financial documentation from the 2014 tax year. The FAFSA is found here, while the University Financial Aid Application (UFAA), is accessed through the Finances section of your SIS Student Center. The FAFSA and UFAA both collect information from the following sources:
- Your Social Security number and date of birth
- Your alien registration or permanent resident card (if you are not a US citizen)
- If you have completed the FAFSA in a previous year, you will need your Federal PIN to log in to the FAFSA website and create a renewal application
- Your 2014 W-2 forms or other records of money earned
- Your 2014 Federal Income Tax Return, including all schedules, if you will file one. If you have not yet filed when you complete the FAFSA, you may use estimates and then update the information after you file.
- Your asset and investment records, such as bank statements, business and farm records, stock, bond and other investment records
Parent Information (for dependent students only):
- Your parents’ Social Security numbers and dates of birth
- Your parents’ 2014 W-2 forms or other records of money earned
- Your parents’ 2014 Federal Income Tax Return(s), including all schedules, if they will file. If they have not yet filed when you complete the FAFSA, you may use estimates and then update the information after they file.
- Your parents’ asset and investment records, such as bank statements, business and farm records, stock, bond and other investment records
- Also note that your parent will be required to sign the FAFSA. They will likely be able to do this electronically, and they can do so with their own Federal PIN after you submit your portion of the FAFSA.
