FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, opened October 1.

House Bill 3 requires all Seniors to either complete the FAFSA form or the FAFSA opt-out form as part of graduation requirements. The FAFSA encompasses grants that can help with college costs.

Aid is awarded on a first come first serve basis. Be the first to apply!
