OTHER FINANCIAL AID OPPORTUNITIES
- This is also the application that you must complete to be considered for federal and state grants & loans. (Grants are money that you may qualify for that does not need to be repaid!)
- Can be submitted as soon as October 1st, 2019.
- You can include as many schools on your application as you have applied to
- Colleges will process your application once you are accepted.
- Pay attention to your colleges' FAFSA deadlines. Some would like your FAFSA in by a certain date (usually early to mid-spring).
- You will need parent financial information (ie: taxes) to complete. Parents can use prior-prior year taxes (2018) for the purpose of FAFSA.
- If you have parents who are separated or divorced, you would only enter the income/taxes of your primary caregiver. This does NOT mean the parent who provides more financial resources, but rather the parent you live with the most. If you live equally with both, you would select one.
- Even if you feel you may not qualify for loans/grants through FAFSA, many colleges still recommend you complete it to be certain. Some colleges also like to have it on file for scholarship opportunities. Another positive to filling it out is that in the event your or your parents' financial situation changes, you can contact your colleges financial aid office to make changes, rather than starting the FAFSA process from scratch.
TIP GRANT - (based on financial need)
- Students attending a technical, 2 or 4 year college in WI
- Must have financial need
- Must complete the FAFSA first and attach your Student Aid Report (SAR) to your application
