Step 1

Apply/Obtain FSA ID

  • You must apply for an FSA ID if you have not already done so. This is your electronic signature that you will need throughout the Federal Student Aid process.

  • If you are a dependent student, you and your parent must sign up for separate FSA IDs because the FAFSA will require both signatures. Federal guidelines will determine a student’s dependency status.

  • If you already have an FSA ID and have completed the 2019-2020 FAFSA but did not list our institution as a recipient:

    • Go to

    • Click on ‘Make Corrections to Processed FAFSA’

    • Add Barber Tech Academy school code – 042435

  • If you have an FSA ID but did not complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA, go to and follow the directions to complete the application online.

  • Please keep your FSA ID and password secure and handy as you will need this information through the federal financial aid process.

Step 2


  • Go to

  • If you are starting a new FAFSA, click on ‘Start a New FAFSA’. If you have begun filling out the application, click on the ‘’Login” button for returning users.

  • Follow the directions throughout the application to ensure it is completed properly.

  • Some documents that will be needed for completion are:

    • Previous year tax returns, if filed

    • Parents’ previous year tax returns (if dependent student)

    • FSA ID and password, parent’s FSA ID and password (for dependent student)
