Add Lake Forest to Your FAFSA

If you completed the FAFSA but did not include Lake Forest, you will need to add us to the list of colleges before we can determine your financial aid eligibility.

Step-by-step instructions for adding Lake Forest are found on this .pdf

Note that if you do not see a confirmation page at the end of the process, the change was not submitted. 

You will most likely receive two emails: the first confirms the changes were received; the second, in 1-3 days, confirms the correction was processed.

>> Note:
 if you remove one college/university in order to add Lake Forest to your FAFSA, the school you removed will still have access to the original FAFSA you released to them. They will not, however, have access to any subsequent changes you make. Contact the Federal Student Aid Center (below) or our office if you have questions.
