Get your FAFSA Applications Done with the Counselors!

Why complete the FAFSA?
If you don’t complete a FAFSA, you could be missing out on a lot of financial aid! Federal Student Aid uses the data on your FAFSA to calculate an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC is the number that’s used to determine your eligibility for federal student aid (grants, loans, and work study) and is an indicator of your family’s financial strength to pay for college or career school.

Counselors are available after-school starting January 26th until 3:30pm to help students and parents with their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) applications. 

Please be advised the FAFSA is due March 2.

To help complete the FAFSA, you will need the following documents:
  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
  • Your most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
  • Records of untaxed income (if applicable)
  • A Federal Student Aid PIN to sign electronically. (If you do not already have one, visit to obtain one.)
