Federal Financial Aid

FEDERAL STUDENT AID


The United States Department of Education can provide assistance for families paying for college. Learn more about ALL of the opportunities at studentaid.ed.gov. This website will link families to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which should be done after October 1 of the student's senior year and every year of college after that. The student and parent complete the FAFSA together.  It is important that the FAFSA is submitted as soon as possible, even if the family must estimate their income before receiving all of their tax information. Do not wait or the money may be gone!!
Families may find it useful to read this "Making Sense of the FAFSA" guide.
