COLORADO — Heads up for current and future college students. Friday is the last day to fill out the 2022-2023 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) program application.

The program allows students to be considered for federal student aid for the upcoming school year. Students may be eligible for Pell Grants, federal work-study, and other need-based grants and scholarships by applying some of which do not need to be paid back.

The process can take some time, be prepared as applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Central time or 10:59 p.m. Mountain time on Friday to be accepted.

Documents and information you may want ahead of time to streamline your application are listed below:

  • Social Security number or Alien Registration number (if you’re an eligible noncitizen);
  • Federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned;
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable);
  • Records of untaxed income (if applicable); and 
  • an account username and password (FSA ID) so you can electronically sign the FAFSA form.
