Financial Aid

Changes to the FAFSA

One of the most important areas to think about when starting the college application process is Financial Aid. Below are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Financial Aid is determined from the students' parents tax information from the previous fiscal year. You can begin filling out the actual application after October 1 however there is much information that you can gather before then. Again refer to the FAFSAweb site.
  • Questions about financial aid and the FAFSA should be directed to the Financial Aid Officer at the institution that you are applying to.
