Our library will be doing our own FAFSA program in February 2011, but if you simply cannot wait to get all the info, there's a free webinar coming up on December 8.
You may be asking yourself what the FAFSA is. If you're a graduating senior or the parent of any college-bound student, now is the time to know.
FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This form is used to determine the amount of money a family is expected to contribute to the price of attending a postsecondary institution. The results of the FAFSA are used in determining student eligibility for grants, work study, and loan amounts. The FAFSA application is critical because it is used for Federal Pell Grants as well as determining eligibility for other financial aid opportunities offered by colleges and universities.
The webinar is hosted by the National Association for College Admission Counseling and will be held on Wednesday, December 8 at 2 p.m. For complete info and to register, visit NACAC.
