The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and is the only application you need to complete to be considered for Federal and State aid in Oregon. Some awards are based on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to apply early every year (the application opens up January 1st of every year).
- Get your FSA ID – You’ll need a FSA ID and password to login and sign the FAFSA online. You can set that up by going to FSA ID. Parents also get a FSA ID and password in order to sign the FAFSA.
- Complete the FAFSA – Log in to www.fafsa.gov and complete the application. There is online help if you get stuck in the process. Be sure you submit when you are done and list all potential colleges.
