What do you need to complete a FAFSA?

  • Our FAFSA-Thon volunteers will assist students to the best of their ability. However, it is very helpful to have your parent present to file the FAFSA. In some cases, students without a relationship with their parent can file independently.
  • If possible, your parent should have access to his or her 2019 Federal and NYS tax returns and social security number of parents and students.
