We have partnered with two state agencies to provide our families with free online professional assistance completing the 2021-2022 college financial aid forms. Financial aid administrators from local colleges will help you and your college bound senior complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application. You may attend any of the 2021-2022 FAFSA completion events. All events are online and require an appointment.
You may schedule your appointment by clicking on the registration link for an online FAFSA completion date. You will receive an email confirmation of your appointment slot within 24 hours of your registration.
Prior to your appointment, you should do the following:
- Obtain an FSA ID for the student
- Obtain an FSA ID for one parent
- Gather the documents needed to complete your FAFSA/TAP applications
Attached is FSA ID information and a list of documents you should have on hand to complete the federal and state college financial aid applications. Visit https://startheregetthere.ny.gov/completing-the-fafsa to learn more about the financial aid application process.
Check with your high school counselor for information on any of the 2021-2022 FAFSA completion events.
These events are sponsored by the New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association and New York State Higher Education Services Corporation.
