New 2011-2012 FASA or renewal?

It's time to do a new FAFSA but the website asks if I want to do a new one or renew one. I'm lost.

  • If you've already done one, you can just renew- which is a much shorter process, you have to have your tax information so you can't do it if you haven't gotten them done yet. You need a pin number to do the renewal, if you don't know it, you can apply for one, it will take a few days to come in the mail. The renewal is much easier than the whole deal, definitely go with the renewal if you've already applied before you should be in the system and only requires you to submit information that has changed, not everything all over again. Those forms are such a pain. Good luck

  • If you renew one, it keeps all your basic info(like name, ssn, birth date) in there, so you don't have to retype everything. All you should have to do is change anything that has changed and fill out tax info.

  • IF you remember your sign in and password, then you can just renew. Otherwise, you have to do new.
