Thank You Veterans

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) will open 10/01/2022. It's important that your Senior Student complete the application to be eligible for financial aid. Even if a student will not qualify for grants, many scholarships require the completion of FAFSA before rewarding other assistance to students.

If you copy and paste the link below, you will be directed to the Federal Aid website. There are two power point presentation links under Attachments which are guides to help you complete FAFSA with your senior student. FAFSA requires personal information and is something that must be completed at home with the person who claims them on income taxes.


I am available as a resource for you to complete FAFSA as timely as possible.

Thank you.
