The FAFSA Form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is available in December.

The US Department of Education is recommending that people use the online availability at (www.fafsa.ed.gov) to obtain a paper copy of the FAFSA to use as a worksheet and to use for filing online after January 1st of each year.

Students/Parents can use (www.pin.ed.gov) to request a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to use as an electronic signature for FAFSA on the web, renewal FAFSA and Corrections on the Web, and to access the National Student Loan Data System. Students should check with the college of their choice to determine which application to file.

Students who list a college within New York State on the FAFSA will automatically receive a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) Form from the State.
