The 2024-2025 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now open! Are you ready to complete your FAFSA?

Here’s what you need to do:

Review Changes to This Year’s FAFSA and FSA ID

The 2024-2025 FAFSA had some important changes you should know about, including new FAFSA account (FSA ID) requirements.

Now, each FAFSA contributor is required to create an FSA ID. Contributors can include:

  • You (the student)
  • Your spouse (if applicable)
  • Your biological or adoptive parents (and other parent if parents live together but are not married or married but file separate tax returns) or
  • Stepparent if parent divorced and has remarried

Review the changes to this year’s FAFSA and watch this tutorial on creating your FSA ID.

Gather Your Information

Before you fill out the FAFSA, you’ll need to gather all the required information for yourself and your contributors.

Contributors’ Information:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Email address (to invite to complete their required portion of the FAFSA)

Your Information:

  • Social Security Number (SSN)
  • FSA ID account and password
  • Net worth of investment, small business and farm
  • 2021 income and tax returns information for contributors
  • Child support received
  • Bank statements

Complete the FAFSA As Soon As Possible

Once you’ve set up your FSA ID and gathered all your information, you’re ready to complete the FAFSA!

Complete the 2024-2025 FAFSA online at StudentAid.Gov.

Be sure to send your FAFSA to Dallas College by adding our school code to your application: 004453. 

One thing to note: Dallas College will only be receiving your financial aid information from the FAFSA in March. That means there will be a delay in processing financial aid offers.

It’s best to file early so your application is among the first processed. The sooner you fill out the FAFSA, the sooner you’ll receive your financial aid award!

If you have questions, we’re here to help. Contact the Financial Aid Office or attend a Financial Aid Help Session.

Remember: If you aren’t eligible for federal financial aid, you can apply for state financial aid by completing the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA).
