How To Apply for Financial Aid
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid
(U.S. citizens and permanent resident students)
The first step in applying for Federal Student Aid is to create a FSA ID! The FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid's online system and can serve as your legal signature. Only create an FSA ID using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use. You are not authorized to create an FSA ID on behalf of someone else, including a family member.
You will need personal information such as your Social Security Number, drivers license number, your Alien Registration Number if you are not a U.S. citizen, and Federal tax information or tax returns, including W-2 information to complete your FAFSA. Dependent students will also need this information for their parents.
Be sure to list College of the Canyons as one of the schools you want your FAFSA information sent to. College of the Canyons Federal School Code is: 008903.
