2017-18 Student Financial Aid Forms

 

2017-18 includes the terms 2017 Fall, 2018 Spring, and 2018 Summer.

The forms below must be printed, completed, and submitted to our office either online to https:/iss.auburn.edu/findocs/, faxed to 334-844-6085, or mailed to 203 Martin Hall Auburn University AL, 36849. All of these forms are not required for all students.

Please read the descriptions below to determine if the form is applicable to you.

Prior to filing the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) online, please review our FAFSA Tips for tips on completing the FAFSA correctly. In order to be considered for need-based scholarships, your FAFSA must be processed and received by our office on or before the priority deadline of March 1. Our office will send award offers beginning early March for students whose applications are complete at that time. An application is considered complete only when all forms or data needed to determine eligibility are received.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only form that a student is required to complete to be considered for student assistance from any of the Title IV, HEA programs except for information needed to ensure the student's eligibility for such assistance (e.g., information needed to complete verification or to demonstrate compliance with the student eligibility provisions of the HEA and the regulations).

Additional information, if requested, will be listed on the student's AU Access>My Finances>Financial Aid Requirements page after we receive the results of the FAFSA.
