The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for our current senior class is now open. Attached please find instructions on how to apply for financial aid. Please note that if you are asked to make any type of payment, then you did not follow the instructions correctly. Applying for financial aid is FREE.

Parents please be reminded that you may use 2010 tax return information or estimated 2011figures to fill out the FAFSA. However, until actual 2011 figures are reported, a final financial aid award package will not be processed.

Additional information regarding the various financial aid workshops being held in the city is also attached. Parents, this is an excellent opportunity to get detailed information about the process from a financial aid expert.

*You cannot apply for financial aid unless you have applied to college.

*Apply early, don’t delay!
