Attention Senior Parents – Financial Aid:

One of the first steps of the college financial aid process is completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form.

The FAFSA enables students who qualify to receive federal/state grants, scholarships, as well as to participate in work-studies programs.

This form was available for submission on October 1.

ALL senior parents are reminded to fill out and submit their FAFSA form as soon as possible! Time is running out!

Additional financial aid websites to check out are: studentportal.isac.org, collegecost.ed.gov, and www.FSAPubs.gov.
