College Knowledge Month and FAFSA Kickoff

Posted by Amanda Sitron on 9/30/2020

Tomorrow is the official start to "College Knowledge Month". During this month I will be visiting advisories and discussing career and college exploration, and will be available for support with college application questions (just send me an email!).

Tomorrow is also the first day the FAFSA opens up to Seniors and their families. By filling out the FAFSA, it gives students access to Loans, Scholarships, and Grants available through the colleges they intend to enroll in. See THIS website for step by step support through the application. Although colleges may have later deadlines for the application, some do give 1st come 1st served awards of financial aid.

Remember that there are many colleges that are test optional this year, especially due to COVID-related testing difficulties. Furthermore, many colleges waive application fees sometime during the month of October to celebrate College Knowledge Month. 

Have fun exploring careers and educational pathways this month, and let me know if you have any questions!
