FSA ID Help Oct. 19th

GEAR UP @ Southridge - October 13, 2016

FSA ID Help on Oct. 19th

The first step in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is getting an FSA ID. On Wednesday, October 19th, GEAR UP will be in the Southridge library from 9-10:30 am to help Seniors apply for their FSA ID. This is a late start day for Seniors (11:25 am), so no class time will be missed.


The FAFSA opened October 1st. Seniors should apply early, to get at the front of the financial aid line!
