Students must complete the free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine if they qualify for Federal financial assistance. The application is free so do not pay any fee to a website. If you have questions and need help completing your application, please contact our Financial Aid Officer for help.
To complete the FAFSA, you will need:
-Previous year's tax return. For example, if you are filing the FAFSA for the 2011- 2012 school year, you will need the tax return from 2010.
-Federal School Code. The Federal School Code for Kussad Institute of Court Reporting is 035564.
-Department of Education Personal Identification Number (PIN). This is used to electronically sign the FAFSA. If you do not have a PIN, you can request one on the Department of Education website. The student and the parents (if applicable) will need a PIN number to sign electronically. Once you have your PIN, you can complete and sign your FAFSA electronically, then you will be able to check the results of your FAFSA and make corrections, if necessary, to your application online.
-File your FAFSA online, once you and your parent(s) have obtained your PIN, be sure to list Kussad Institute of Court Reporting, Federal School Code, 035564, in the school release section.
-Be sure to complete each step and write or print out your confirmation number when filing the form online. You will need the confirmation number in case any issues come up when processing your application.
-After you file your form, contact the financial aid officer by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember to put your phone number in your email so the Finanacial Aid Officer may contact you. After your FAFSA has been reviewed and she talks to you, an award letter will be emailed to you.
-Once you've filed your form, you can check the status of your application online, or you can call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-433-3243 to use their automated response system.
