7) Fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) (fafsa.gov). You will first need to set up a FSA ID (fsaid.ed.gov). The FSA ID will verify you are you by your social security number (parent and student each need an FSA ID). This will also allow you to sign the fafsa document online.
