HISD’s College Readiness Department will be visiting high schools beginning Oct. 2 and continuing through Nov. 15 to assist seniors and their parents fill out their financial aid application. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAF$A) is the first step toward getting many different types of financial aid for school, and finishing your FAF$A early is the best way to maximize college award packages.
FIEL, a community partner, will also be available to help and answer any questions regarding Texas Application for Student Financial Aid (TASFA) and DACA status. They are an immigrant-led organization that advocates for just laws for immigrant youth, their families, and access to higher education for all.
