FAFSA & Financial Aid Info

FAFSA Opt Out Letter

October is Financial Aid Awareness month and it is also the opening of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The FAFSA must be filled out prior to graduation or a waiver must be filed with the school board office in order for students to graduate.  There will be an open house from 9-2 on Thursday, October 12th sponsored by Sowela and the Louisiana Office of Federal Student Aid (LOSFA).  Parents are welcome to come in with their 2016 tax information and they will help you fill out the FAFSA.  The FAFSA is the only way a student can recieve TOPS, grants or any other type of federal money.  The open house is for all students, regardless of where they plan to attend after graduation.  

In the event you do NOT wish to fill out the FAFSA, please sign the Opt Out form that was sent home in the September letter informing you of the upcoming finanacial aid meetings.  If you do not have the letterr, please click the link above and download another one.
