Completing the FAFSA – WSCC School Code 008863

To receive student financial aid, you need to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every school year. The WSCC academic year begins July 1 and ends June 30. For Financial Aid purposes, summer school is considered a "trailer", the last term of the academic year. Regardless of when classes end, the start date determines which FAFSA should be completed. For example, you enroll in summer classes that begin in June and end in August, 2012. You would need to complete the 2011-2012 FAFSA. If you enroll in Fall 2012 classes, you would need to complete the 2012-2013 FAFSA.

The FAFSA

Please read each question on the FAFSA carefully before answering. After completing the FAFSA and each subsequent correction to the FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Federal Processor. READ every SAR in its entirety, especially the comments section. The SAR will indicate if your application has been selected for Verification. If selected, please submit all documents as soon as possible to the WSCC Financial Aid Office. Any discrepancy must be resolved by the Financial Aid Office before a determination of eligibility can be made. Thus, carelessness in filling out the form can result in a delay in financial aid. The verification process can take several weeks for completion. Therefore it is very important to apply early. We recommend filing your FAFSA as soon as you have completed your federal tax returns. Read below for tips and information that can help with completing the FAFSA and Verification (if selected).

Facts and Stats

  • Approximately 40% of all students who file a FAFSA will be selected for verification by the Federal Processor. Some are selected randomly, while others are selected as a result of information reported on the FAFSA.
  • Approximately 70% of all FAFSA applications require corrections.

General Tips

Avoid common mistakes when submitting paperwork to the WSCC Financial Aid Office.

  • Ensure all documents requiring a signature are signed
  • All questions are answered in their entirety
  • The student's name and student ID # are on every document
  • Submit copies, and maintain the originals for your personal records

Use the name printed on your current Social Security Card when completing the FAFSA.

  • If you use the wrong SSN in error, DO NOT attempt to make a correction to this number. YOU MUST file a new FAFSA.

Read each question on the FAFSA very carefully.

  • Pay close attention to questions regarding
  • Household size
  • Number in college
  • Adjusted gross income
  • Taxes paid
  • Marital status
