What should I bring?
Parents and students should bring their tax information and/or last pay stub from
the 2012 tax year in order to complete the 2013/2014 Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form allows families to estimate
their financial information, which can be corrected after their taxes
have been completed.
All information reviewed by the CGS volunteers will be kept private and confidential and will not be used for any purpose other than helping the students and families apply for financial aid.
Please bring the following:
