Financial Services offers a variety of financial aid events available to high school students and their families. Presentations and workshops are available for those who wish to learn more about the financial aid process, completing the FAFSA, or evaluating financial aid awards.
Financial Aid Information Sessions are held during the Fall and Winter semesters. High school students and their parents are encouraged to attend a session to learn general information regarding the financial aid process.
Just like a Financial Aid Night held at local high schools, this session provides general information able to be used no matter what college or university students plan to attend.
Topics include the elements of financial aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), private resources available, and more!
Students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1 as possible, beginning in their senior year of high school and continuing throughout their college career.
FAFSA Workshops are available to high school seniors or current college students in October, November, and December. Parents are encouraged to accompany their high school seniors to assist in completing the FAFSA. FAFSA Workshops allow students and families to receive professional assistance in completing the FAFSA on an individual basis. These events are free and open to the public.
Prior to attending the workshop please review the FAFSA Checklist for a list of items necessary to complete the FAFSA. Students and parents should each create an FSA ID at least one week prior to completing the FAFSA. Use the FSA ID Worksheet to record related information for your files. Create an FSA ID now.
