Seniors applying to college for the following school year will need to apply for financial aid at each university they are applying to in order to know what aid they can receive from that institution. This means that a student/parent will need to understand the financial aid process and apply for the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This must be done each school year in college for the following school year. Currently, the FAFSA application opens annually on October 1st.
In order to apply on the FAFSA, a student and guardian MUST both have an FSA ID (the link is below). The FSA ID is essentially a signature that is unique to each person. The following links are available for you to gain more knowledge about this process. As always, please call if you have more questions! We will be glad to assist you in this process.
