FAFSA Information for Seniors

If you are planning to go to college next year, there are some important changes in the financial aid process that you should know about. Students can file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or the FAFSA, starting on October 1st — which means the form is available NOW. Every college has its own deadline for the FAFSA, so check in with the schools you applied to and make sure you don’t miss that date. Filing the FAFSA early means you have more time to make your final decisions about where you’re going to school, so get your FAFSA filed ASAP. See the school counselor’s office if you need help or have questions.
