What you'll need:
It is very important that all information on your FAFSA be completed carefully and accurately. Much of your information may have to be verified.
STUDENT’S ADDRESS: Your permanent home address. If you live outside of NY or in a foreign country, use that address on your FAFSA.
NAME OF HIGH SCHOOL: Must be exactly the way it is written on your diploma.
DEGREE/CERTIFICATE: For most students is 1st BA (not "teaching" or "other").
FINANCIAL INFORMATION: Must match your parents' 2021 federal tax return 1040. If you did not yet file your tax return, do NOT submit the FAFSA with estimated figures. It will only complicate and delay your grant. Make sure to file your 2021 TAX RETURN ASAP and only then should you complete your FAFSA.
STUDENT’S EARNINGS: Only your earnings for the calendar year 2021, January 1 - December 31. You may have to document your earnings with a W-2.

IF YOU HAVE MEDICAID, SNAP, OR FREE LUNCH, PLEASE CHECK YES FOR THOSE QUESTIONS.
You may send a screenshot of your FASFA to [email protected] to review for accuracy before you submit it.
You can apply for TAP on the FAFSA website as soon as you finish your FAFSA application.
Please note: As soon as you hit “Submit” on the FAFSA Website, you will receive an automated response saying, “Congratulations, your FAFSA has been successfully submitted”. That means that they received your application. The amount of your grant in the email is an estimate. The Dept. of Education puts the responsibility on the institution to verify and document the information reported. Funds are disbursed only after the financial and academic files are complete.
