Part: 3 - - Filling Out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid

PageNumbers: 59

As mentioned earlier, in Part II of this Handbook, the student does
not have to pay a fee for filling out the Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA). Information collected on this application is
required by law to be used to calculate the Expected Family
Contribution (EFC). The FAFSA is developed by the Department in
conjunction with other agencies. Comments on the design of the
form are solicited from the public every January. Comments may be
sent to:

Applicant Systems Division
U.S. Department of Education
ROB-3, Room 4651
7th & D Streets, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20202 *8*

The instructions on the application explain how each question is to
be answered. However, due to limited space, the instructions cannot
address every possible family situation. In the following pages, we
have provided a copy of the 1994-95 application. In addition, we
will discuss the purpose of the application questions, and discuss
how information should be reported in some unusual cases.

[[The copy of the FAFSA which is on pages 60-63 is currently
unavailable for viewing. Please reference your paper document
for additional information.]]

*8* Please note, however, that much of the information collected on
the application is specified by law, and is needed to compute the
EFC. Therefore, any comments should take into account the
requirements of Section 474 of Title IV of the Higher Education Act
of 1965, as amended.
