Give Yourself the Gift of Financial Aid this Holiday Season

What better time to fill out the FASFA than during winter break? Once you are home, you will likely have access to all of the information you need to complete the FASFA for the 2018-2019 school year.

To file the FASFA, here’s what you’ll need:

  • an FSA ID
  • your Social Security Number
  • 2016 federal tax information for both you and your parents
  • Rutgers Federal School Code: 002629

To make the process even faster, be sure to utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT).

Filling out the FASFA only takes about 30 minutes, so you’ll have plenty of time between opening presents and good eats to get it done. The priority filing deadline for continuing students is January 15 – the sooner you fill out your FASFA, the better!
