The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the form developed by Federal Student Aid that is used by colleges and universities to determine how much financial aid a student qualifies for. The FAFSA is the only form that enables students to apply for assistance from the federal and state governments, as is required by many colleges and universities for their financial aid process as well.
At ICAN we understand that for many the FAFSA is a daunting task. In our FAFSA Completion Appointments we strive to make the process as painless and stress-free as possible, while fulling explaining each detail of the form, the results and answering any questions you have about financial aid and the college planning process in general.
During your appointment you'll sit down with a highly trained Student Success Advisor and, together, you will complete the form on the federal government's secure FAFSA website. All the information submitted is secured by the FAFSA website and ICAN does not store any of your personal information once your appointment is complete.
Once submitted your Student Success Advisor will go over your results, explain your next steps and review the process for additional scholarships. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and get personalized planning advice throughout your appointment.

What to Bring to a FAFSA Appointment
To file your FAFSA you need to have income and tax information for the student and, if dependent, the parents. Depending on when you will begin school will determine which tax year you must provide.
In order to complete your FAFSA during your appointment, you MUST have your FSA ID username and password for both the student and parent setup and verified. The verification process can take up to five days so you need to do this at least five days prior to your appointment. The FSA ID is used to sign the FAFSA form. Learn more about the FSA ID at www.ICANsucceed.org/FSAID.
