Don't forget to update your FAFSA if you filed with estimated income information to meet priority financial aid deadlines.
Correcting the FAFSA is not difficult. Simply log in to the FAFSA, indicate that you want to make a correction and change your tax filing status for parents and student (if the student filed taxes) from not having filed yet to having filed. Then update the Adjusted Gross Income, earned income and taxes paid. Additionally, check the list of colleges on the FAFSA to insure that the colleges listed are the colleges where the student has actually applied.
