Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)


As part of applying for financial aid at Trinity, you must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can fill out your FAFSA online by leaving this site and going to the U.S. Department of Education web site. The address is www.fafsa.ed.gov.

You will need to set up an FSA ID and password in order to electronically sign your FAFSA. This ensures that all of your data remains secure and also allows you to import tax information from the IRS into your FAFSA using the Data Retrieval Tool. You can obtain your ID and password at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid.

There is no cost to apply for federal student aid, and free help is available. If you need help completing your application, click the "CHAT" link on any screen to chat online with a Customer Service Representative, or Call 1-800-4-FED-AID to speak to a Customer Service Representative. Once you've completed your application, review your answers carefully and, if necessary, correct them before submitting your FAFSA. Sign your FAFSA. You can sign electronically with your PIN, print a paper signature page to sign and mail in, or wait for a signature page to arrive in the mail. Submit your application by selecting the "Submit my FAFSA now" button on the very last page of the form. Once you submit your application, you'll be taken to a Confirmation Page that shows your confirmation number and estimated Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Your school will use your EFC to determine the types and amounts of aid you're eligible to receive. Print a copy of the Confirmation Page for your records.
