Prior to this event, each student and parent will need to obtain a FSA User ID, available at

Additionally, students and families need to bring their 2022 Federal Income Tax Return with schedules. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops, although computers will be available if needed.

Students planning to pursue a postsecondary education in the fall of 2024 should complete the FAFSA before May 1 to be considered for the West Virginia Higher Education Grant.  To be considered for the Promise Scholarship, students must submit the FAFSA and the Promise application before May 1.
