Important reminders

  • Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you have not done so already. www.fafsa.ed.gov
  • Search and apply for third party scholarships. These scholarships are mobile, meaning you can take them to whatever school you are attending. It’s a great way to help pay for additional expenses (i.e. books, housing, etc.).
