FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid
---> fafsa.ed.gov <---
The office of Federal Student Aid provides grants, loans, and work-study funds for college or career school. Students interested in obtaining this aid, must first complete the free online application here (Be sure to use this website; there are others that boast of Federal Student Aid applications, but they are not free nor supported by the US Federal Government). You will need your parent's most recent tax information in order to complete the application. Explicit step-by-step instructions are provided on the website. You can download the attached FAFSA Worksheet but it is only a worksheet designed to help you gather and prepare your information for completion of the online version - DO NOT MAIL THE WORKSHEET (They will not accept it!). The official application must be completed online. The FAFSA can be completed any time after October 1, 2017, or as soon as your parents have filed their current taxes. The Federal deadline for completion of the FAFSA is June 30, 2018, however, the deadline for State of Missouri applicants is April 2; Missouri applicants must meet this deadline. If you have questions, see Mrs. Grass in the Guidance Office. Please note that the sample worksheet displayed below is for students beginning college in the fall of 2016. The worksheet for students beginning college in the fall of 2017 is not yet available; it will be posted it here as soon as possible.
