IMPORTANT: MARCH 15, 2018 IS THE DEADLINE FOR FILING THE 2018-19 FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID (FAFSA).
If you will be a student at AU for the 2018-19 academic year...
It's FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) filing time!
For 2018-19, you don't have to wait until January 1, 2018! The 2018-19 FAFSA became available on October 1, 2017.
You'll need your Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) to sign the 2018-19 FAFSA. Go to https://fsaid.ed.gov
to create an FSA ID (if you do not already have one).
Proceed to https://fafsa.gov
to get started with the FAFSA filing.
For 2018-19, you will be using 2016 income information. No need to wait until 2017 tax return is filed!
Use the Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to upload the 2016 income directly from the IRS to more quickly complete the form.

Upon completion of the FAFSA, you will be directed to "Start your state application" if your home state requires it. For NY State residents, this form is called a TAP Application and is required for TAP and other NY State aid.
For New York State Residents only: Be sure the proper Alfred University TAP school code is listed for both the fall and spring semesters.
Alfred's Code is 0020 for programs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Business, College of Professional Studies, and Mechanical, Renewable Energy, and Undecided Engineering.
Use code 0960 for all other Engineering Programs and the School of Art and Design.
