Frequently asked questions

When you , Wyatt will help you with your application, send regular tips and reminders, and help you navigate the latest changes to the FAFSA.

Wyatt is designed to help high school seniors and other students complete the FAFSA.

Wyatt can answer questions about your FSA ID (you’ll need one to apply), eligibility, deadlines, and more. You can also text Wyatt to find out what documentation is required to submit your FAFSA and what you’ll need from a parent for your application.

Here are a few examples of questions you can ask Wyatt:

  • Who should start my FAFSA, me or my parent/guardian?
  • How do I know if my application has been submitted?
  • Who should I name as a “contributor”?
  • What if my parents didn’t file taxes?
  • How should I list my schools?
  • Should I complete the FAFSA if I’m undocumented?

The FAFSA is the gateway to get help paying for college. It can unlock thousands of dollars in federal grants, student loans, state assistance, and other resources to make college more affordable. Students who complete the FAFSA are more likely to attend college right away — and in some states, filling out the FAFSA is a requirement for high school graduation.

Not filling out the FAFSA could really cost you. More than 40% of 2022's high school graduating class didn’t complete the FAFSA, leaving almost $3.6 billion on the table.

The FAFSA is getting a major overhaul for the 2024-2025 award year, including a new set of questions, new eligibility calculations, and changes to how grants are calculated.

Also, the latest FAFSA wasn't available until late December, nearly three months later than normal. This means students have less time to complete their application this year.

That’s where Wyatt comes in. Wyatt is fully up to speed on all the latest changes to the FAFSA, ensuring you’ll get fast, accurate answers to get your application done right.

If you , you’ll need to provide your cell phone number to chat with Wyatt. Wyatt will use your number to text occasional reminders to help you stay on track with your application. You can also text Wyatt with questions as you fill out the FAFSA — anytime you like, 24/7.

Wyatt is free for students to use. There’s no limit to how many questions you can ask. Keep in mind, your cell phone carrier’s standard message and data rates may apply. You can opt out anytime by replying STOP.

Wyatt will not ask you to share any sensitive personal or financial information (your Social Security number, for example). Any personally identifiable information you do provide will not be shared with a third party. For more information, see Wyatt's Terms of Use.
