Financial Aid

  • In order for a student to qualify for financial aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form must be completed as soon as possible after January 1 of the student's senior year.  Only then can students qualify for grants, loans and student work programs.

    FAFSA can be completed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov or by a paper form that can be found in the Counseling and Career Center.

    There are a variety of online resources that can assist with the process and answer questions.  Our counselors are also available upon request.
