Completing your FAFSA

FAFSA – Free Application for Student Financial Aid & Other Required Documents

You can submit the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov or obtain a copy from the Student Financial Services Office or a high school guidance office. The U.S. Department of Education evaluates your FAFSA and provides a Student Aid Report to the colleges you list on your application.

Step 1. Complete FAFSA

  • Apply for a FSA ID at www.fafsa.gov
  • Student who has previously attended college – Submit copies of college transcripts with your financial aid application.
  • Submit the FAFSA as soon as possible starting January 1. (Your application can take up to six weeks to process, so don’t delay!)
  • List FPC’s school code – 003568.
  • Complete the FAFSA using your, and if applicable, your parent’s income tax return from the previous year.
  • Follow the instructions carefully and do not leave any blanks.

FPC should be able to access your Student Aid Report within three to five days from the date you submitted your online FAFSA to the Processing Center.  You may contact FPC’s Student Financial Services office to confirm the status of your file.

Step 2. Submit additional documents as requested by Student Financial Services.

Student Data Form

After you enroll in your classes, FPC's Financial Services will send you an email or letter if additional information is needed. Please provide the Financial Services office with additional documents if you are a:

  • Student who has previously attended college – Submit copies of college transcripts with your financial aid application.
  • Non-citizen– Provide proof of eligibility (I-94, I-551, or I-151 forms)
  • Military veteran applying for general financial aid – Submit your DD-214 form and your eligibility letter regarding veterans education benefits.

Step 3. Verify your information if requested.

If your application is selected for verification (this is a random selection by the Department of Education), you may need to submit:

  • Please return to your FAFSA and use the IRS data Retrieval Tool if you did not do this when you filled out your FAFSA.
  • A Verification Worksheet

Step 4. Await Notification

After you register for classes, the Financial Services Office will contact your by email or phone if we require further documents or information. If you are eligible for aid and all documents are received, the aid will be placed on your account and you can view the information on your student portal or contact the Financial Aid Office for assistance.
