Seniors and parents, do you have any plans for this Saturday, October 1st? If you are looking for something to do, you can file the FAFSA!
The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) has always been known to become available on January 1st. This has changed, and it is going to make applying for financial aid a lot easier for families. The October 1st opening date allows families to use prior-prior tax returns. This means that if the student is enrolling in college for the 2017-2018 school year, the 2015 tax returns can be used. The early date should make it a lot easier to complete the FAFSA and enter accurate tax information. For additional information about the FAFSA, click here!
With anything that goes along with the college application process, students should be double checking all college financial aid deadlines. This also includes the CSS Profile if that is required as well.
Lowell Catholic will be hosting it’s annual Financial Aid Information Night on Thursday, October 27th at 6:30 in the auditorium. A representative for MEFA will be here to explain the financial aid process and answer any questions you may have. You don’t want to miss this very important night!!!
