Seniors, it’s not too late to complete the FAFSA. Although the priority deadline has passed, you can still complete the FAFSA!
Completing the FAFSA is the best first step to funding any post-high school education plan. It’s a no-cost way to discover what sources of funding might be available to assist anyone in furthering their postsecondary education. It can connect a student to federal Pell Grant — free money for college that doesn’t need to be paid back — as well as scholarships, loans and work-study programs. Completing the FAFSA can reveal a funding pathway for students — including those who may have assumed education wasn’t affordable. Please see the college adviser or a counselor for assistance and more information!
