Completing the FAFSA / WASFA
Which One Do I Fill Out?
FAFSA: The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a free application for federal financial aid for students who are a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or an eligible non-citizen.
WASFA: The Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) is a free application for state financial aid for students who are not eligible for federal aid (through the FAFSA) because of immigration status, including undocumented students.
For Parents Without A Social Security Number
If a parent does not have a social security number, but the student is eligible to complete the FAFSA, making the parent account will be a little different.
