Financial Aid
    In order to receive financial aid such as grants and loans, students must fill out the FAFSA or the TASFA by using their parent’s income tax information in the spring semester of their senior year. Since students are under the age of 24 and are considered dependents, they are required to use their parent income tax information. Awarded financial aid will be on a first come, first serve basis. For parents, this means it is very crucial to file your taxes as early as possible in order to qualify for the max amount of financial aid your student can possibly be offered based on financial need and cost of attendance per college/university.


    Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
    This a free financial aid application for students that are either U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents only. To qualify for priority consideration for financial aid awards, students must submit their financial aid applications before March 1st annually.
