Financial Aid Information
Financial Aid season is coming up quickly and I wanted
to list some resources here. First of all, I gave a packet
of information to the seniors just before Christmas break that
contains lots of information. Dates to remember:
February 15-March 1- Most colleges set a deadline in this range for when FAFSA must be filed to be eligible for financial aid from the university or college.
www.fafsa.ed.gov links you to the online filing system for FAFSA. Remember, you can't file until after January 1, 2013. All filers are encouraged to use the on-line application process but if you need a hard copy, you can down load it at www.federalstudentaid.ed.gov
The Ohio Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators web site is full of good information, and so is the Federal Governments financial aid website, studentaid.ed.gov
Parent Information Nights
There was a Parent Information night on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 in the new computer lab at 7 pm. Information covered included college selection, career selection, collage applications, and scholarships. Click here for the PowerPoint.
There was a Parent Information meeting on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 7 pm in the new computer lab to discuss basic information on Financial Aid.
