Now is the Time to File the FAFSA
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an online form college students and their families submit, which allows the Office of Financial Aid to determine a student's eligibility for federal financial aid. Submit the FAFSA online at fafsa.ed.gov, which is the official website for submitting the FAFSA and it's free to complete! There are other websites, which list a fee associated with the FAFSA, those are not official and should be avoided. The priority FAFSA filing period is January 1 to March 1, annually.
Oklahoma City University will determine eligibility for aid after receiving each student's FAFSA. In order to gain access and sign the FAFSA, both parents and students must register to log in with FSA IDs (Federal Student Aid ID) and passwords. To submit the FAFSA, parents (and students, if applicable) will use 2015 tax information. If taxes have not yet been filed, estimated amounts from completed 2014 tax returns may be used, and then updated after 2015 taxes are filed with the IRS. Those parents (and students, if applicable) who have already filed 2015 taxes will find that utilizing the IRS Data Retrieval system will simplify and expedite the FAFSA submission and verification process.
Remember to submit the FAFSA application early and contact the Office of Financial Aid if you have
questions or need guidance with aid at OCU.
