ATTENTION SENIORS! - The FAFSA application will open up in October. All students interested in financial aid for college are required to complete this form, and many colleges require that all students complete FAFSA regardless. The application is free to submit. The FAFSA is available for filing online at https://fafsa.ed.gov. *The Parent Resource Center will be open from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday if you would like to come in and use the computers to file for FAFSA.*

  • To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will need:
    • Your Social Security Number
    • Your Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
    • Your most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)
    • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
    • Records of untaxed income (if applicable)
    • An FSA ID to sign electronically. 
  • If you are a dependent student, then you will also need most of the above information for your parent(s). 
  • The deadline for the 2018-2019 FAFSA is midnight, Central Time, June 30, 2019. The earlier you file, the more grant money you are likely to receive (up to twice as much). Filing early also helps to ensure you don’t miss FAFSA deadlines for state and college aid, which may differ from the federal deadline. You can find state FAFSA deadlines at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm. For a specific school’s FAFSA deadline, contact the college directly.

Reminders for completing scholarship applications: Seniors MUST always go exactly by instructions for scholarships. They are to use a black or blue pen ONLY when completing applications by hand.  No pencils, red pens, etc.  Write/print carefully so applications can be read.  Seniors need to have their name and name of the school on any and all attachments in case the application and attachments get separated. When scholarships or college applications require a letter of recommendation, always ask the person well in advance that you would like to write that letter for you.  Don't wait until the due date to do this. Also, if you could furnish the person with a list of your extracurricular activities; school, community, clubs, awards received, etc. this will help them write a nice letter of recommendation for you.
