What things do I need to get ready to file, and what should I bring to a FAFSA support event:

  • Your Social Security number, or if not a U.S. citizen, alien registration number or permanent residence card
  • Your driver’s license number
  • Your parents’ and your tax return(s) from the year prior to the application opening
    • For example, if you are filing the FAFSA to begin college in 2021-2022, so you would use tax returns from 2019
  • Your parents’ and your most recent bank statements
  • Your parents’ most recent business, mortgage and investment records
