Time to file your 2019-20 FAFSA for the 2019-20 Academic Year

If you will be a student at AU for the 2019-20 academic year and you have not already filed your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) ... It's FAFSA filing time!

The 2019-20 FAFSA became available on October 1, 2018.

You'll need your Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) to sign the 2019-20 FAFSA. Go to https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas... to create an FSA ID (if you do not already have one) or if you have forgotten your Username or Password..

Proceed to https://studentaid.ed.gov... to get started with the FAFSA filing.

For 2019-20, you will be using 2017 income information. No need to wait until 2018 tax return is filed!

It is strongly recommended that you use the Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to upload the 2017 income directly from the IRS to more quickly complete the form.

The Alfred University FAFSA school code is 002668.

Upon completion of the FAFSA, you will be directed to "Start your state application" if your home state requires it. For NY State residents, this form is called a TAP Application and is required for TAP and other NY State aid.

For New York State Residents only: Be sure the proper Alfred University TAP school code is listed for both the fall and spring semesters.

Alfred's Code is 0020 for programs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Business, College of Professional Studies, and Mechanical, Renewable Energy, and Undecided Engineering.
