Here is the link to the 2016-17 FAFSA on the Web Worksheet. Some of the ASPIRE sites might not be aware that it is now available. One of the changes is that the old PIN has been replaced by the FSA ID. When you apply for the FSA ID it is checked against your social security account and the process takes 2-3 days. The first page of the Worksheet explains how to get a FSA ID. If a family attends a FAFSA Completion Workshop and does not have FSA IDs they can save the application and go back into the account later when they have the FSA IDs and sign and submit the FAFSA.
It is important to get the FAFSA submitted in the first week or two of January since the Oregon Opportunity Grant is “first come” and will probably be out of funds by late January.
