FINANCIAL AID



READY, SET, FAFSA - 

JANUARY 1ST

FAFSA

All seniors should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Submitting the FAFSA accurately and early is one of the keys to getting a more favorable financial aid award package, because some financial aid is available on a limited or first-come/first-served basis. When you submit the FAFSA you are applying for federal grants, loans and work-study, which is a campus-based, part-time work program where you receive an hourly wage for work performed. The FAFSA is also used by states for some state aid programs. Colleges use the FAFSA for institutional aid that is unique to an individual campus.

 

Special Alert from FAFSA

The New Digital Communication Tools Are:


1. The Commission's FAFSA Text back campaign with Get Schooled:  Text the word "FAFSA" to 335577 to get basic FAFSA questions answered.
