Today, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opened nationwide. Don’t wait! Get your proof of 2019 household income together and either fill out the FAFSA at fafsa.gov at your house or come to school and let us help you. Don’t ever let money be a reason why you can’t attend college. You can come to school on Monday, October 5th (by appointment-call Mrs. Meade) or on the 9th from 12-6 and meet with our KHEAA representative. We will be following social distancing guidelines and you must wear your mask. If you have all of your information, it will take you about an hour to complete the FAFSA and make an FSA ID (username and password) to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you have younger siblings, your parents may already have an FSA ID. You’ll need that in order for them to sign your FAFSA. I emailed all the seniors a 2021-2022 FAFSA completion guide. Please let us know if you have any questions.
