Print Your 2014-2015 FAFSA Application
A printable FAFSA Application can help families plan ahead for electronic filing.
While students apply to colleges in the fall, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) isn’t completed until January. One reason for this is the FAFSA requires reporting the family’s income for the entire prior year (also referred to as the base year).
Ideally, tax returns should be filed before signing the FAFSA. If the return cannot be completed, estimated figures may be used, but they must be corrected later when exact figures are known. There is also a verifying check to match FAFSA income information with IRS tax filings.
Use the printable FAFSA ahead of time to can see the questions that will be asked and make some notes to yourself on this paper form. This not only makes it easier when completing the FAFSA online, but you might also gain some ideas on how to shift some assets and thus qualify for more aid.
