  • Financial aid tip of the month

    High school seniors planning to attend college or technical school this fall should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA, as soon as possible.

    The FAFSA is the form students complete to determine if they qualify for federal and state grants and to apply for federal student loans. Also, many colleges use information from the FAFSA to determine the distribution of grants and scholarships administered by the school. Students should submit the FAFSA even if they feel it is unlikely they will qualify for aid.
