it's been years since I've filed that thing, but I thought you could put multiple school codes on it . . . I would say it's better to get it in ASAP

noooo. Definitely don't wait till April. As SteelEyes said, you can list multiple codes on the FAFSA. Try to do it by March 15th.

There's a number on the website for you to call -- the FAFSA fairies will hand enter the additional codes.

What if your or your parents tax returns wont be finished?
A.) Parental info isn't mandatory for federal aid (only for institutional awards)
B.) You are allowed to guesstimate.

Just estimate the amounts like MedicineBird said. But you realy should put it down on the off chance you actually qualify for institutional grants and stuff.

Fill out the FAFSA online. You can update it (add schools) later if you need to.
