Start preparing for the FAFSA now to get a headstart

You can start completing the FAFSA (the application for federal student financial aid) online starting January 1. The earlier you complete it, the better—so you can get a headstart by gathering some information now. Once you have your last pay stub of the year, you can use that to find out your annual income. If you attended school this year, you can probably find out the total of your tuition costs and other payments through your online student account. By having all of this info handy, you will be able to get through the FAFSA application more quickly right after New Year’s. (You can submit your FAFSA with estimated figures and update it later once you have official numbers.)
