Helpful Hints for Completing the FAFSA

• Make sure that you have the necessary tools to do the job. You'll need copies of taxes for yourself, and if you are a dependent student, your parents (IRS Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ). You will also need records of untaxed income or benefits and current bank, savings or investment information.

• Read and carefully follow the instructions on the application form. Answer all applicable questions completely and accurately.

• Be certain that your social security number is correct.

• Manhattanville participates in the Direct Loan Program. You do not have to contact or apply to a lending institution for student loans. If you want to be considered for student loans as part of your aid package, indicate your interest on your FAFSA/Renewal FAFSA. Your award letter will show the amount you are eligible to borrow.
