January Parent Meeting

Financial Aid applications are now available!

For application help or more information regarding FAFSA, Ms. Ross will be available Thursday, January 21 @ 6:30 pm at Hayes to answer questions.  You can use computers at the school to complete this crucial step in your student’s post-secondary educational pursuit.

You will need the following to fill out the online application:

  • Student’s social security card
  • Student’s income information* (Bank statements; a W-2 orpay stub, if you have a job; past tax return, if you filed)
  • Parent who claims student as a dependent should be present
  • Parent’s financial information* (Bank statements; W-2 or pay stub; last year’s tax return)
  • Parent’s social security number
  • Any additional financial information (such as child support statements, TANF or welfare information; real estate, stock or bonds investments; family business or farm info.)

*You can use last year’s tax return to estimate your current tax information and submit the FAFSA. If you do this, you will update and make corrections after you file your taxes.

 If you cannot make the Parent Meeting, WSU Vancouver will host FAFSA filing at 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 23. 

Funding An Education

If you are planning to apply for financial aid, scholarships and/or grants, this is the perfect time to make a list of what each institution or program will need from you and the deadline by which they will need it. A completed FAFSA form will be necessary and some programs also require the CSS Profile, a separate document.

Click here to get an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) by filling out the “forecaster”.  The submitted FAFSA will ultimately determine what federally and state funded grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans a student or family qualifies for.

The College Board website provides the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE, which can be accessed at this link.

The FAFSA form is available after January 1, 2014 so in the meantime students can apply for a PIN, an electronic number that also serves as a signature for all applications to federal student aid as well as personal federal aid records.
