Help with completing FAFSA is Here!

Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) is launching FAFSA Family Filing Nights, a series of events dedicated to assisting students and their families in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Families will need an FAFSA login ID (which may be created at  https://studentaid.gov/fsa-id/create-account/launch), Social Security Number along with their student or Alien Registration number if not a U.S. Citizen but an eligible non-citizen, 2022 Federal Income tax Return, W2s, along with any other supporting documents.
