You must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for federal, state, and institutional funds that we award. Information regarding applications is available at each of the four colleges (FCC, LTC, OCC, & WVC). The application may be filed online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Online applications are returned in 7-10 days. Applications filed by regular mail are returned in 2-3 weeks.
The first time you file online it will probably take you about an hour to complete the form, so plan on filing when you have some quiet time and can concentrate. You need to have a copy of your tax return and W-2 forms, and a calculator. You will receive a PIN (Personal Identification Number) by mail 2-3 weeks after your signature page is received. You can use this PIN to log on to www.fafsa.ed.gov and access your Student Aid Report (SAR).

Ideally, you should complete a FAFSA after you have filed your (and your family's, if applicable) tax return. If your tax returns are not done early, estimate as accurately as possible the prior year's income and taxes paid using W-2s, paycheck stub, untaxed income statements, etc. You must correct your FAFSA once tax returns have been filed. Failure to make corrections to your FAFSA will cause delays in the processing of your file.

Not if you’ll miss the March 2 priority filing date! We encourage you to complete your taxes as early as possible so that your FAFSA is accurate. However, if you or your parents cannot complete the taxes before March 2, use your best estimate of income and taxes. Just indicate on your FAFSA that you are using estimated figures. Once you file your taxes, you can make corrections if necessary.
