Financial Aid at Cape Coral Technical College
All students seeking financial assistance must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The fastest and recommended way to complete the FAFSA Application is online http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.
Create FSA ID
An FSA ID is a username and password that gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature.
Create an FSA ID @ fsaid.ed.gov
If you are under 24yrs old, not married and don’t have any children that you support, you are consider a DEPENDENT. Therefore, your parent must create an FSA ID.
If your parent doesn’t have a Social Security number (SSN), your parent won’t be able to create an FSA ID (which requires an SSN).
This means you’ll have to select the option to print a signature page when you get to the end of your FAFSA form on fafsa.gov (this option isn’t available in the myStudentAid app).
