2019-2020 FAFSA is available to complete!

The 2019-2020 FAFSA became available for filing on after October 1, 2018. Completing your FAFSA early will help to ensure that you receive all of the aid that you are eligible for. Filing early also helps to ensure that you don’t miss FAFSA deadlines for state aid. You can find state FAFSA deadlines at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm.

To file a FAFSA you will need to visit:  https://fafsa.ed.gov . Be sure to use Capitol Technology University’s school code: 001436 to ensure that we receive your application.

You can create or obtain your FSA ID here: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid

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)
  • 2016 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. The tool is expected to be reinstated for the 2019-2020 FAFSA. 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.
