Thinking about college? Then it is time to learn about FAFSA!

FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. 

WHS will be holding Virtual Informational Meeting on October 8, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. 

The meeting will be led by a representative from Wright State University Financial Aid & Admissions team. They will share valuable information to help you understand the why and how for FAFSA.  The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the primary form that the federal government, states and colleges use to award grants, scholarships, work study and student loans.

Even if you think you do not qualify for financial aid it is still important to complete the process because some financial aid programs require a FAFSA even though they award aid without regard to family income and it may automatically qualify a student for low-interest federal student loans.  Lastly, filing a FAFSA can actually help a student gain admission to a college because it allows the admission officers to know the student most definitely wants to attend the college.

New changes in the FAFSA process has made it quicker and easier.  Both students and parents will need to create a username and password called the FSA ID.  It is recommended that JUNIORS set up their FSA ID now to help with college searches and valuable information as well.
