Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opens October 1st, 2021
How to Fill Out and Submit the FAFSA:
Step 1: Get a FSA ID ? Go to https://fsaid.ed.gov to apply for Federal Student Aid (FSA). You, and your parent if you're a dependent student, should get an FSA ID as soon as possible. You can apply for an FSA ID at any time, but in some cases, you’ll need to wait up to three days before you’re able to use your FSA ID, so we recommend registering early.
Use the FSA ID to make corrections, access online information, and sign your FAFSA.
Step 2: Get the FAFSA form. Completing the FAFSA form online at fafsa.gov is faster and easier than using paper. If you need a printed FAFSA form, visit https://fafsa.ed.gov/ to download a FAFSA PDF or order a print-out of the FAFSA PDF. Ask the financial aid office at your college or career school whether you can file it there. Some schools will use special software to submit your FAFSA form for you.
Step 3: Fill out the FAFSA
Fill out the FAFSA form in December or January of your senior year (or the year before you enter college). You will need your parent or guardian’s help filling out the FAFSA because it will ask for their income.
Go to https://fafsa.ed.gov/ and login using your FSA ID. This site guides students and parents through the FAFSA step by step, lets you know if you have forgotten anything, and provides online help (including private online chats for questions).
Types of Federal Student Aid:
A Grant is money that you will not have to pay back. Many low-income students receive one grant or another from the government. (Example: Pell Grant)
A Subsidized Loan is money you will have to pay back. The loan starts to accrue interest after you graduate from your school.
An Unsubsidized Loan is money that you will have to pay back. The loan starts to accrue interest as soon as you receive the money.

If any of you are thinking of the military and are interested in taking the ASVAB, Army Sgt. Thewes wanted me to share this with you:
We can put students on the practice test and if they score well enough and want to move forward with the process we can give them the full version, which ours is un-timed so people tend to do about 10 points better, and results will be automatic instead of having to wait a month or longer.
If you are interested in exploring this option, contact Sgt. Thewes at 928-228-9994.
By law, all 18 year old men must register. This also provides you the access to college student loans, grants, and job training programs. Register at: www.sss.gov
