In order to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you’ll need to create an FSA ID. This username and password will be unique to you, and you must use it to log into the Federal Student Aid website. The FSA ID acts as a legally binding signature in order for you to accept future federal financial aid. Create your FSA ID with an email account that you will maintain during your college years.
Visit the FAFSA website site and complete the application. The FAFSA can be completed any time after October 1 each fall using your tax return information from an earlier tax year. The 2019-20 FAFSA will utilize tax information from 2017. Remember to use UPIKE’s FAFSA code: 001980.

“As a first-generation college student the financial aid process seemed intimidating to me and my family, but UPIKE financial services staff came to my high school and held a workshop to teach us how to complete the FAFSA. Once I received my award letter, my UPIKE admissions counselor sat down with me and fully explained my financial aid package, line-by-line.”
