Get answers to some common questions, plus tips to help you fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Forms

Forms designed to supplement your financial aid application can be downloaded here.

Your Federal Student Aid Personal Identification Number (FSA PIN)

The FSA PIN is issued by the Department of Education and allows you to access and electronically sign personal financial aid information online at the FAFSA website.

Title IV School Codes

Find the Title IV school code for your college, required for filling out your FAFSA form.

Renewal Application

You must reapply for financial aid each year. You can complete the Renewal FAFSA, but be sure to update your income, asset and household information.

Special Case Application

Occasionally circumstances arise that make the FAFSA data an inaccurate picture of a family’s ability to pay. Sometimes it is possible to reassess a family’s unique situation.

Summer Aid

State and federal financial aid is available for qualified applicants attending the colleges of DCCCD for the May term or Summer sessions.
