FINANCIAL AID NIGHT

www.fafsa.gov

FAFSA Completion Night-Thursday, Oct. 21st 5:30-7pm in the Commons (during parent teacher conference night). 

Bring your parent/guardian and your laptop! 

You will need your social security number and maybe your drivers license number. 

Unless you are an "independent student," you will need to provide information from the parent that you live with for more than 50% of the time only--it will ask that parent about their 2020 financial info/tax info, and usually they can pull this information right into the form through a link within the application.

Again, this is the FREE Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)--it is how you get free money from the government to go to college. If you at all believe you may go to college/trade school, you will need to complete this form. 

If you do not wish to complete the FAFSA, you can sign a waiver form to meet this graduation requirement, and the waiver forms can be found on Ms. Ford's door in the office.

The first thing you will have to do is create an FSA ID (create an account for you the student, with a username and password).  Your parent/guardian will also need to create an account.  You will use this log in information every year when completing the FAFSA, so save it!


Here is our ISAC rep's contact info if you have questions about completing the FAFSA:
