Financial Aid Information
Financial Aid is an important part of the College Application process. With the rising costs of college, affordability is always on everyone's mind. Below are links to important websites with regards to financial aid. We highly recommend every student complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Some colleges and universities require additional forms, including their own institutional forms as well as a form called the CSS/Profile (College Search Service Profile). Please keep this in mind when researching schools and keeping track of deadlines.
