Paying for College

There are many ways to pay for college. There are scholarships and financial aid available. 

An important step in financing college is filling out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal StudentAid). The government recommends completing the online application.

Seniors and their parents/guardians can request, and be assigned, a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID), which is required to complete the FAFSA online. While FSA ID numbers can be obtained at the same time students begin their FAFSA, you are encouraged to request your FSA ID BEFORE beginning your FAFSA.


Please be aware of scholarship and financial aid SCAMS.  You should NOT have to pay money to apply for financial aid and scholarships.  If you receive a letter or phone call from anyone offering to help you find scholarships or financial aid please it is important that you see Ms. Austin or Ms. Amador-Zapata first before offering any personal information, as often times this can be a scam.
