FAFSA Fin. Aid Process

November 22

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is required by virtually all colleges for students to receive need-based financial aid. PARENTS should read and learn about the FAFSA process.

Military Academies

November 22

If you’re interested in attending one of the military academies, learn about the application process so you will be prepared to start the process in spring 2015.

FAFSA PIN – Apply

November 26

FAFSA PINs (Personal Identification Numbers) are required for both you (the student) and one of your parents. The FAFSA must be completed as soon as possible after January 1, so now is a good time to apply for your FAFSA PINs.

CSS/PROFILE – Submit

November 27

Reminder: Make sure your parents complete the CSS/PROFILE financial aid application if it’s required by the colleges and universities you’ve been accepted to (or have applied to).

Bank Accounts – Students Beware

November 28

Students should minimize money in their bank accounts if they are applying for need-based financial aid. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! Colleges and universities expect you (the student) to use virtually your entire savings to help pay for college. Consider using your money to purchase items for college (e.g., laptop computer) before applying for financial aid.

Final Exams

November 29

Do well on your final exams in December. Junior year grades are evaluated very closely by college admission officers; earn the impressive grades needed to be accepted to your college of choice.

Social Networking

November 29

Clean-up any personal information you and your friends have posted on your internet social networking sites (i.e., Facebook.com).  Many colleges and universities review information and photographs posted by student applicants (and their friends) to see the personal side of students.
