Seniors & Parents of Seniors--You Can’t Afford to Miss This!
On Monday night, October 21st from 5:00p.m.-9:00p.m. we are hosting a free workshop for our Seniors and their parents on filling out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (also known as FAFSA) forms.
Ms.Wanda Pierce, a college financial aid advisor from East Central University’s Educational Opportunity Center, will be conducting the workshop. I encourage every parent and senior to attend. Ms. Pierce will walk you through the application process step by step, fill out the application for you, and answer any questions that you may have!
You will be filling out and submitting your FAFSA online that night in our computer lab.
Both parents and students need to log on at https://fsaid.ed.gov to fill out an application for their personal PIN # in advance so they can complete their online FAFSA application that night.
Remember - Applications cannot be completed without these PIN #’s!
The FAFSA form is a federal financial aid application that
must be submitted online or mailed in (regardless of income) before students are allowed to begin classes, or play sports at any college, university, or technical school after graduation.
*****Regardless if you think you may qualify for federal aid or not, you are still required to fill out a FAFSA form. It is the sole basis on which all “free money” such as Pell and OTAG grants, or student loans, and work study jobs are based.
*****Federal money is dispersed on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to fill yours out early!
