How to pay for college?
If you want to go to college, FAFSA is the 1st step towards that goal. FAFSA stands for FREE Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA application will be available to you in October of your Senior year. It will be ideal if you and your parents could sit down together to complete the FAFSA. Even if you do not qualify for much, most financial aid to include scholarships, will refer back to your FAFSA. Learn how to pay for college in English and/or Espanol https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/
