Free Application for Federal Student Aid - FASFA
On October 1st, the FAFSA https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) will open for students planning to enter college in the 2020-21 school year. Families and students will use their completed tax information from 2018 to fill out the form. Completing the FAFSA is required in order to received financial aid and federal loans to pay for college. Some aid, such as the Oregon Promise (two years of paid tuition for community college in the state of Oregon) and the Oregon Opportunity Grant, are “first come first served” so it is important that families complete the FAFSA in a timely manor.
Students who have DACA status or not documented citizens can complete the ORSAA (Oregon Student Aid Application) as they may be eligible for aid at public universities and community colleges in Oregon (including the Oregon Promise). If the student is a US Citizen, but one or more parents isn’t, they are still eligible to complete the FAFSA. It may be helpful to contact the student’s counselor in this situation for more information on completing the FAFSA.
As always, please contact the College & Career Center if you have questions or need help with the college application or financial aid process.

Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-Thon October 9-17 - Answer the Call!
The 21st Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-thon takes place October 9-17, 2019. This annual dialing tradition provides critical funds that support innovative educational programs for students in the Beaverton community. During the five-fun-filled nights, more than 350 student volunteers make over 30,000 phone calls, dedicating their time, energy and enthusiasm to supporting BEF programs.
Last year, BEF served over 27,000 Beaverton students in grades K-12, funding 124 academic programs or projects. Through this funding from our supporters and community engagement, $390,603 was invested back into our schools.
This year our goal is to fund 130 projects impacting 30,000 students. Together, we will make it happen.
The Phone campaign and the associated mailings are the Foundations largest fundraising activity of the year. Funds raised are reinvested in a wide variety of after and summer school programs for students at all of Beaverton public schools. Please Answer the Call for our students!
