What is FAFSA Day?
FAFSA Day is a free program that provides information and assistance to Massachusetts families applying for financial aid for higher education. Financial aid professionals from MA colleges and universities help families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the required form for students seeking financial aid, including grants, work study, and loans.

When is FAFSA Day?
The ARHS FAFSA Day event will take place on THURSDAY, January 28, 2016 at 7:00 p.m..

Who should participate in FAFSA Day?
All students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible for federal financial aid. Most students should complete a FAFSA. Students who need help applying for financial aid to attend college are encouraged to participate.

Who Sponsors FAFSA Day?
FAFSA Day is supported and administered by a volunteer committee of members of the Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA), as well as members of various community organizations.

What do I need to bring?
Both students and parents must have an FSAID. Create them at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid. Bring them with you. (FSAID replaces the PIN, used in previous years)

If available, students and their parents should bring completed 2015 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 statements and other 2015 income and benefits information. Current bank statements, untaxed income records for the previous year (Social Security, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, welfare, or veterans benefits records), driver’s license (if any) and alien registration card (if you are not a U.S. citizen).
