Instructions are provided for each FAFSA question in the Help and Hints section on the right side of the page. When additional instructions are available, Help and Hints will include a “More” hyperlink.

To access Help and Hints:

You can also use your keyboard’s tab key to move from field to field. The Help and Hints will change as you move from one FAFSA question to another.

If you cannot access the Help and Hints, use the Search function in the upper right-hand corner of the page to find specific information for each question. For example, if you need to know where to find the adjusted gross income on your tax return, type “adjusted gross income” without the quotes into the Search box.

If you review the help provided and still have questions about the FAFSA, you can view additional help options by clicking Help at the top of any page.
