On the PFS, indicate all schools that should receive your information. This way, you only have to complete one form to apply for aid at several schools. The fee for submitting your PFS is the same no matter how many schools you want it sent to. However, if you think you can’t afford the fee, contact the school(s) about the SSS Fee Waiver Program. 

Fill in all requested information. The PFS will ask you about family size, total income, savings, investments, indebtedness, medical and dental expenses, any unusual expenses, and other assets such as home equity.

Follow the step-by-step instructions along the way. If you are completing the PFS online, there is help next to each question and many other resources.

If you need more answers, call the toll-free Customer Service Center at (800) 344-8328 or e-mail sss@nais.org.

Submit any additional documents required by the school.

Completing the PFS is just one step in the overall process.  Most schools require additional documents, such as your most recent income tax return. Ask each school what they require, where to send, and the deadline. Sometimes a school's required documents deadline is different from the PFS deadline. 

IF you have been instructed by the school(s) to which you are applying to send documents to SSS, you can choose to upload them electronically within the PFS Online. Read more about uploading documents electronically or by mail.
