FIRST! - FAFSA

Seniors, make sure you file your FAFSA opening October 1st.
You'll first need to create an FSA ID for yourself and the parent you plan to file with. Have this part done BEFORE October 1st to be ready to file when the application opens. The sooner the better!

PS- Nearly every scholarship will require you to have a FAFSA on file!

PSS - If you qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch, you will likely qualify for the Pell Grant, which can pay up to $5,700 per school year for up to 6 years!

EVERY SENIOR/GRADUATING STUDENT needs to complete the FAFSA by DECEMBER 1
but it can be completed after December if necessary.


Create your (and your parent's) FSA ID HERE.
To file the 2017-2018 FAFSA go to FAFSA.GOV to file.
If you're doing summer classes you'll need to do the 2016-2017 FAFSA ALSO!
