FAFSA

FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You can fill out a web-based version at FAFSA and will find step-by-step instructions are provided on this site. Filling out the FAFSA online allows you to get your Student Aid Report (SAR) sooner than with the paper application and your FAFSA will be more accurate, since the online form has built-in edit checks to catch simple errors. It is very important that you submit this form to the federal government as soon as possible after Jan. 1. Be sure to have a copy sent to Pacific University (Federal School Code 003212). Do not wait to be accepted into the program to apply for financial aid and do not wait until you have filed your income tax returns with the IRS. You should either estimate your income — you will have a chance to correct errors later — or complete your tax return early. If you wait, it will delay processing.
