The 2021-2022 FAFSA is now available for filing for the Fall 2021, Spring 2022 and Summer 2022 semesters.
You should file the FAFSA as early as possible. To increase your chances of receiving state aid, in addition to federal aid, it is important to know the deadline for your state of residence. In addition to varying deadlines, some states award aid on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to file your FAFSA to receive aid from Maryland Higher Education Commissions is March 1, 2021. For the District of Columbia the FAFSA must be completed by May 1, 2021. For DCTAG, complete the DC OneApp and submit supporting documents by May 31, 2021.

Filing your FAFSA is easier if you have gathered everything you need before you get started. If you are a dependent student you will need the following information for yourself, as well as your parents. If you are married you will need this information for your spouse also.
- Social Security Number (or Alien Registration Number if you are not a US citizen)
- Student’s driver’s license (if applicable)
- 2019 Federal tax returns
- Bank statements, records of investments, and records of untaxed income
- An FSA ID to electronically sign the form (students and parents will each need their own FSA ID)
The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) can make obtaining accurate tax information easier. However, there are some stipulations on who is eligible to use the DRT, so it’s still a good idea to have the information list above on hand.
