FAFSA Tips

Any Metropolitan College student intending to sign student agreement must have an official FAFSA on file with the school you are attending.

Where do I go to file my FAFSA?

  • Go to www.fafsa.gov to access the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application and make sure the correct school code is listed (JCTC—006961; UofL—001999).

When should I complete the FAFSA?

  • You should file your FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1.

What will I need to file my FAFSA?

  • You and your parent (if applicable) will need your income information. You DO NOT have to wait until taxes have been filed to complete your FAFSA. You can submit your FAFSA using best estimates of your income information (i.e. W-2’s, paycheck stubs, etc.).
  • You and your parent (if applicable) will need a FSA ID, which consists of a username and password, to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you do not have a FSA ID, you (and your parent if applicable) can create one. For assistance with creating a FSA ID, go to www.fafsa.gov.
  • School Code: UofL: 001999; JCTC: 006961

What should I do after I complete my FAFSA?

  • Monitor your Financial Aid To-Do List items on Student Self-Service or ULink to ensure all additional procedures are complete by the school’s tuition deadline.
  • Returning MC Students with incomplete FAFSAs will not be able to sign the agreement. Examples of incomplete FAFSA’s include but are not limited to: Rejected FAFSA, Loan Default, Verification, etc.
  • New MC Students with incomplete FAFSAs can sign agreement using a FAFSA confirmation page for first agreement signing only. Bring your FAFSA Confirmation Page with you if you have completed the FAFSA within the last two weeks.
