With the FAFSA for the next academic year 2018-2019 now available and ready to complete, I am pleased to hear a lot of students have completed theirs. If you have not yet done so, you have until January 1, 2018, for consideration for priority funding. Unlike years before, taxes the application is based upon should have already been completed.

Let’s get the ball rolling on 2018-2019!  The Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FASFSA as we know it is available to complete for next school year! Here are some things to consider before starting yours. The early bird gets the worm. Well, in this case, the bird gets the opportunity. The FAFSA available October 1 will be available to complete and submit.

You have enough to juggle about, allow us to assist in reminding you of important events, dates, and other academic affairs on our “Public Service Announcement” boards, both physical and on social media. This fall you will have events that can help you save a lot of money by finding money to pay for school. Read more and learn about important changes impacting FAFSA.
