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.  The FAFSA is the only way a student can recieve TOPS, grants or any other type of federal money.  

In the event you do NOT wish to fill out the FAFSA, please sign the Opt Out form that is located in the link above.   

Below are two helpful links.  The first is an address to the official FAFSA page which will answer many of your questions and the Senior Checklist is a great tool to make sure you are on track.  Don't stress that you are behind, there is still plenty of time to complete the FAFSA!
