Financial Aid Night at the Highlands, Feb. 29, 2016

in Events, News

West Liberty University is hosting a Financial Aid Night at the Highlands Center on Monday, February 29 from 4 – 7 pm.

Completing the FAFSA is one of the most important steps in preparing for or continuing your college education. During this Free FAFSA help session, our financial aid staff will help you complete this important form and answer any other financial aid questions you may have.

WHAT TO BRING

To complete the FAFSA, you will need access to several personal and financial documents. The FAFSA asks for information from the most recent year’s tax records. If you have not yet filed your taxes for the most recent year, you can use information from a prior year — you will just have to edit your FAFSA later once you have new information.

 Please bring:

  • your FSA ID (Make sure to register for this at least three days before you want to complete your FAFSA!)
  • your parent or guardian’s FSA ID (Make sure to register for this at least three days before you want to complete your FAFSA!)
  • your driver’s license (if you have one)
  • your social security number
  • your parents’ social security number (dependent students only)
  • Your current tax records and return
  • your parents’ current tax records and return (dependent students only)
  • your spouse’s current tax records and return (married students only)
  • your untaxed income records, including child support, worker’s compensation, untaxed portions of pensions and any other untaxed income you have received
  • information about your/your parent’s investments and bank account balances

FAFSA PIN and FSA ID Changes!

in News

The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to fafsa.gov, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®) at www.nslds.ed.gov, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and Agreement to Serve (ATS) at www.teach-ats.ed.gov.

Step 1 When logging in to one of the websites listed above, click the link to create an FSA ID.
Step 2 Create a username and password, and enter your e-mail address.
Step 3 Enter your name, date of birth, Social Security number, contact information, and challenge questions and answers.
Step 4 If you have a Federal Student Aid PIN, you will be able to enter it and link it to your FSA ID. You can still create an FSA ID if you have forgotten or do not have a PIN.
Step 5 Review your information, and read and accept the terms and conditions.
Step 6 Confirm your e-mail address using the secure code, which will be sent to the e-mail address you entered when you created your FSA ID. Once you verify your e-mail address, you can use it instead of your username to log in to the websites.
