Its FAFSA Time

Are you thinking about college?   Then it is time to learn about FAFSA!

FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Stanley County School District will be holding an in-person informational meeting on Wednesday, October 6, at 6:00 p.m

The meeting will be led by Cathy Mueller, Executive Director Mapping Your Future. Ms. Mueller will share valuable information to help you understand the why and how for FAFSA. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the primary form that the federal government, states, and colleges use to award grants, scholarships, work-study, and student loans.

Even if you think you do not qualify for financial aid, it is still important to complete the process because some financial aid programs require a FAFSA even though they award aid without regard to family income. It may automatically qualify a student for low-interest federal student loans. Lastly, filing a FAFSA can help a student gain admission to a college because it allows the admission officers to know the student most definitely wants to attend the college.
