Financial Aid Opportunities
How to Pay for College
You can get grants, loans, and scholarships by filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You will need your parents to help you fill this out. Both you and your parent will first need to create a FSA ID. The FSA ID is how you will be able to save the FAFSA once you create it, as well as sign the application electronically.
For the FAFSA, you and your parents will need your social security numbers, and your parents tax information to fill it out. The FAFSA website (fafsa.edu.gov) is a fantastic place to start learning about colleges, financial aid, careers, and steps to take to go to college.
