Hello senior parents. The FAFSA opens October 1st, 2017. It is recommended that you submit this application by the beginning of January (check the priority date of any potential colleges or specialty schools you are applying to since they each have different deadlines).
FAFSA on the Web is the official site of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). It is important to note that you will use tax information from the 2016 year, when applying for the 2018-2019 college year.
If you have any questions regarding financial aid and how it works or how to fill out the FAFSA form, watch the video “7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA: Student’s Guide to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid“. http://www.finaid.ucsb.edu/fafsasimplification/index.html
Financial Aid Night for all three high schools is held October 25, 2017 from 6:00-7:00 pm in the Peninsula High School Auditorium. This is a very informative meeting for Senior parents and students. All other grade levels are welcome to attend and get a head-start on planning for their students post high school education.
