Financial Aid Information
October 1st starts one of the most important components of the college admission process: securing the finances to pay for college. It is extremely important that Seniors and their parents/legal guardian complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (most commonly known as FAFSA) form and submit it to the federal government to determine their eligibility for financial aid . The FAFSA affords parents access to federal loans, grants, and scholarships based upon individual family need.
