***New – The FAFSA will now be available for completion on October 1st***

Terms That You May Want to Know

FAFSA     (fafsa.ed.gov)

Senior parents, please file your income tax returns as soon as possible on October 1st.  Students must complete their FAFSA.  Even if you think that your child will not qualify for financial aid, please complete this form.  Many schools will not award any scholarships to students who have not completed this form. The 2016-2017 FAFSA will not be available for schools to order.  Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA on-line, but may call 1-800-433-3243 to receive a paper application.

FAFSA Workshops

Tyler Powers from KHEAA will be here to assist on October 12th.

Please bring your 2015 income tax information, social security numbers, date of birth and marriage/divorce date of parents.  Documentation of child support, welfare, and social security benefit amounts will also be needed.  If you are completing your FAFSA on the web, it would be helpful to have registered for your pin before hand, but this is not mandatory.

If you are unable to attend that date, but would like assistance, they will set up another meeting time for you.

I do recommend that all seniors planning to attend any type of post-secondary training or college complete the FAFSA Application.  Many scholarships will not be released without the FAFSA and it is required for many student loans.
