How to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA is the foundational document for receiving financial aid at Brewton-Parker College. To receive maximum funding your applications and your FAFSA results must be received in the Financial Aid office no later than April 1st, but applications for federal aid may be made at anytime. We recommend applying early each academic year. The Academic year includes fall, spring, and summer semesters. For Brewton-Parker College to receive your FAFSA, our school code must be printed in Step VI. Our school code is 001557.

There are several tips that can make completing the FAFSA easier than you may expect. There are two ways to complete the FAFSA.

The first and fastest way to submit a FAFSA is to complete a FAFSA on the Web. If you wish to complete the FAFSA in this way here are some hints:

1) Plan Ahead
You have three options for signing the FAFSA when you complete it on the web. You can:

  1. Use your PIN Number to electronically sign your FAFSA. This is the fastest and easiest way to sign the FAFSA on the Web. Click here for steps to request a PIN number.
  2. Print a paper signature page from FAFSA on the Web, sign it and mail it to the address provided
  3. Transmit your online FAFSA without signing. If you choose this option, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) in the mail requesting signatures. Sign and return your SAR to continue processing. This option will slow down the processing of your Financial Aid considerably.

Gather the following documents for both the student and the parent to be used in completing the FAFSA:

  1. Federal income tax returns (For the 2008-09 school year, use 2007 tax returns)
  2. W-2 forms
  3. Records of untaxed benefits received
  4. Current bank statements
  5. Records of other savings and investments, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds
  6. Your PIN numbers

2) Open your browser to www.fafsa.ed.gov or click on this link:

3) Select Entering a FAFSA. Then, follow the on screen instructions to fill out the application.

4) Review your answers and if necessary, correct them before transmitting your application.

5) Sign your completed FAFSA.
Signatures from both you and one of your parents (if you’re a dependent) must be provided before your FAFSA can be processed. You have three options for signing. You can:

  1. Use your PIN Number to electronically sign your FAFSA.
  2. Print a paper signature page from FAFSA on the Web, sign it and mail it to the address provided
  3. Transmit your online FAFSA without signing. If you choose this option, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) in the mail requesting signatures. Sign and return your SAR to continue processing. This option will slow down the processing of your Financial Aid considerably.

6) Submit your application.
When you have completed your FAFSA, click on the “Submit my application now” button at the bottom of the screen to transmit your application over the Internet. You’ll be taken to a screen that says, “Your application has been submitted.” Write down your confirmation number and your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

7) Watch for the SAR to be sent to you.
You should receive your SAR in the mail about two weeks after transmitting your FAFSA over the Internet. The schools listed on your online FAFSA will get electronic copies of your SAR so that they can figure out how much federal financial aid you can receive.
