Now is the time to apply for Free Application for Student Aid

(Continued)

NORMAN —

· Step 4: You will be required to sign the application. You can choose to sign electronically using your acquired pin number or you can print the final page and mail it in. We recommend the electronic option because, as we said before, it’s quicker and all of this is first come, first serve.

· Step 5: Once you have clicked submit, a screen will appear displaying your EFC. This is your Expected Family Contribution. Do not let this frighten you because each school is different. It’s basically telling you how much money you should expect to pay per year for your child’s college education.

After submission, you will get an email in approximately a week referring to the SAR, which is the Student Aid Report. This report is basically a recap of all information you have given FAFSA, and it allows you to review and edit what you entered.

You will most likely be told that you have been chosen for review. At that time, you will be asked to send hard copies of a few pages of your filed tax return to FAFSA. Be sure you sign these documents prior to sending. This does sound like a confusing process, but we promise you if we can do it, you can do it.

We have helped many parents and students through this process. Please feel free to email us if you have more questions. You’ll be fine — we have faith. The website takes you through step by step.

Please send questions to questions.classact@gmail.
