If you're looking for any federal institutional aid or any federal loans, then you need to fill out the FAFSA. That means if you want need or merit based anything or any federal loans, subsidized or unsubsidized, fill it out. If you are going to pay everything out of pocket and aren't even going to apply for any federal or institutional money, then no.Larsitron said:I'd ask your schools, but I can't think of a reason that if you're going to be paying the full sticker price of tuition that you'd have to.

You can still get loan money EVEN IF your need is low or negligable. Not sure about the subsidized/unsubsidized balance. I just filled out mine, and it was very easy.
And I believe you can estimate tax info if you don't have everything done.
