These hands-on workshops with PHEAA representative, Kim McCurdy, offer parents and students the chance to work one-on-one to complete the FAFSA form for college financial aid. There will be computers available at all of these workshops. Participants may also bring their own laptops/devices. Registration for the public library sessions is recommended.
In general, information concerning income and assets is needed in order to complete a FAFSA. Please note that if an applicant uses the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, they may not need to have an actual copy of a tax return with them to complete the FAFSA.
Applicants may need the following items to complete the FAFSA:
- Social security numbers - student and parent/guardian
- Driver's license - student and parent/guardian
- Federal income tax return (1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ) - student and parent/guardian
- W-2 forms from all employers - student and parent/guardian
- Current bank statements - student and parent/guardian
- Records of any stocks, bonds, and other investments, including 529 accounts - student and parent/guardian
- Current business records (if applicable)
- Additional untaxed income tax records may be needed, such as Veteran's non-educational benefits, child support paid/received, and worker's compensation
- Alien registration or permanent resident card (if not a US citizen)
There will be one more FAFSA workshop on March 28 at the Whitehall Public Library, also from 10am - Noon.
