College Financial Aid Assistance
Filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows students access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or vocational school. The FAFSA is a free federal form that is completed to determine eligibility for financial aid to go to colleges and universities. It should be completed at the same time college applications are done in the fall of senior year of high school in order to get the most financial assistance. All students should be submitting a FAFSA regardless of income to maximize their college aid.
We assist families, both the student and the parents, to complete their FAFSA. This service is offered for free to students and families in our community.
