The first step in financial aid is to file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as possible.  Whether it is  believed you will qualify or not, it is important to file as colleges use this as the first step in financial aid.  If you do not file, it is likely that the next step will not be reached and financial aid opportunities may be missed.  With few exceptions, most students will need parent tax information to file.  You will use your 2017 filed taxes.   If help is needed, college financial aid offices are great resources.  The FAFSA opens October 1, 2019.

**** Beware of Scholarship Scams!!  

The Federal Trade Commission offers the following signs that a scholarship offer is NOT legitimate:

  1.       “The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back.”
  2.      “You can’t get this information anywhere else.”
  3.       “May I have your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship?”
  4.      “We’ll do all the work.”
  5.       “The scholarship will cost you some money.”
  6.       “You’ve been ‘selected’ by a national foundation to receive a scholarship.”
  7.      “You're a ‘finalist’ in a contest you have never entered.”
