Once the Calendar turns to October many begin to think about Halloween, pumpkin spiced foods and other fall activities. But for high school seniors October is the beginning of FAFSA season.
The FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the form used by colleges to determine students’ eligibility for financial aid. Without a submitted FASFA students cannot receive any financial aid to help pay for college.
“Whether it’s the Tennessee Promise, HOPE Scholarship, grants or financial aid directly from a school students must complete the FAFSA process to access that money,” Advise Tennessee College Advisor for Franklin County High School Shaina Rabb said.
To help students and parents navigate the FASFA process Franklin County High School is hosting a FASFA Workshop on Thursday October 14th from 2-6 p.m. in the school’s computer lap 106.
“During this event seniors and their parents at FCHS can get assistance in completing and submitting their FASFA application which is an important step in the college planning process,” Rabb Said. “If you are planning to attend college, take advantage of this opportunity to complete your FASFA and move on to the next step of the planning process.”
Registration is required for this event and can be done by phone at 968-3446 or by visiting this link
After signing up seniors are advised to see page 43 of their Senior Next Gide to find out which documents they need to bring with them to complete the FASFA application.
