Complete the FAFSA

To complete the FAFSA, begin by logging into the FAFSA website.

Hampshire College's school code for the FAFSA is 004661.

For most families, it may take up to approximately 30 minutes to complete the FAFSA. You do not need to complete the FAFSA in one sitting. You may save your work and return to it later before submitting the form. 

Gather information you will need for the FAFSA before you begin the form, including your and your parents' tax returns (if completed), W2 forms, and bank account statements. If you or your parents own real estate other than your primary residence, a net value of the property (current value less outstanding mortgage) should be included in the Investments section. 

We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE students and parents to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) on the FAFSA to import electronically the appropriate tax year data.  This will ensure that the data is accurate.
