STCU FAFSA events.

Getting started with federal student aid can be tricky. Let us help.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is used to apply for financial aid for vocational training, an apprenticeship program, and 2-year, 4-year or post-graduate degrees. Like a lot of federal forms, it’s a bit of a lift, but it unlocks opportunities for scholarships, grants, work-study programs, student loans and more.

STCU is partnering with local High School and College Career Readiness/Guidance Counselors, Launch NW and the College Success Foundation to provide qualified help completing the FAFSA form. It’s free for any family with a student considering next steps – even if they’re uncertain whether that includes higher education. 

You don't need to be an STCU member to attend and there's no registration required. Rest assured, water and snacks will be provided. 

Before you go.

We strongly recommend you create your FSA ID at studentaid.gov before attending an event. If you already have an FSA ID, great! If not, we can walk you through the process. 

Learn more about the FSA ID

Please bring along the following information and/or documents:

  • Email addresses of student and parent(s).
  • Social Security Numbers and birthdates of student and parent(s). For Green Card holders, please provide your A-Number.
  • 2022 Federal Tax information or return(s).
  • Records of any untaxed income.
  • Cash, savings, and checking account balances.
  • Investment information, other than your primary residence.

While it's optional, we recommend bringing a laptop with Wi-Fi capability.

When and where.

The final bell has rung for our FAFSA events this spring. Check back after summer vacation for fall dates.
