FAFSA Made Easier by Going Merry:
Below is information on how to connect your IRS information with your FAFSA using the Going Merry program.
To connect to the IRS DRT:
A student’s FAFSA must be successfully “processed” (it takes 1-3 days after submitting for the FAFSA to be processed)
A student must have access to their parent’s FSA ID and password
A student must have access to their parent’s 2020 tax returns to double-check the exact spelling of things when connecting to the IRS
Remember to upload the additional documents required to your Going Merry account and attach it to the scholarship application. There is not an option to turn it in later or to anyone else. Turn it in with your application on Going Merry.
In addition, the list of scholarships will most likely change as new scholarships are expected to be added to the list. So please check back periodically for updates on the list of scholarships associated with the District Scholarship Application. (When completing the district scholarship application, complete the form using the year that you are a graduating senior.
When completing financial aid for college, complete forms using the dates of the school year you will be attending college, not the school year you are a graduating senior. This information applies to juniors graduating early as you are classified as a graduating senior for scholarship/financial aid purposes).
