Complete the FAFSA online at
beginning October 1
For students hoping to enter Earlham College for the first time for Fall Semester, the FAFSA must be submitted by March 1.
For Indiana State Grants (Indiana residents), the FAFSA must be submitted to the federal processor by March 10.
Carefully read the FAFSA instructions. This will help you avoid errors.
Both student and parent must obtain an FSA ID at
to complete the FAFSA. Your FSA ID is a unique identifier and password that gives you access to the Federal Student Aid system, and allows you to sign documents electronically.
The FAFSA has a convenient option called the DRT – Data Retrieval Tool which enables you to pull information directly from your completed IRS tax return into the FAFSA. We
recommend using this tool. It not only saves you time and reduces potential errors, but may also keep the government from requesting additional documentation
Students whose parents are divorced or separated should carefully read the FAFSA instructions concerning who should complete the FAFSA. Generally, the parent with whom the student lived the most during the preceding 12 months should complete the FAFSA. If that parent has re-married, their spouse's information must also be reported on the FAFSA.
