Financial Aid Information

 

Step 1: Talk to your parents about your plans for education after high school. Be open with them about your wishes and listen to their opinions and feelings. Discuss the financial implications of your plans and be clear about your family’s financial situation. Be clear about what you are truly willing to contribute.

Step 2: As you apply for colleges or trade schools, always indicate that you are interested in financial aid or scholarships. If there is no place to indicate this on the application, inquire about aid and scholarships at the school’s Office of Financial Aid. If you are considering an athletic scholarship, your coach should make contact with the coaches or athletic directors of the schools to which you are applying. Athletic scholarships are very limited. However, there are non-monetary benefits that are available: easier admission, preferential housing or registration, etc. If you are applying to private or out-of-state colleges, find out if they need the "CSS Profile" (found on collegeboard.com) and if so, when is the deadline for its submission.

Step 3: Be sure your parents attend to the information night on the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)" that will be held in the district in January.  This information evening will assist you in completion of the form that is the basis for many federal and state grants as well as many college financial aid programs. Many schools and programs use the information from this form even for non-need based scholarships. Some private and out-of-state colleges require the "CSS Profile" mentioned in step 2. We strongly encourage all students to fill out the FAFSA application regardless of income. In addition, much can change between the time a FAFSA is submitted and the time your child actually attends college. An unexpected turn in your family's financial situation can help you if you have filled out this form. You can also be eligible for lower rate student loans by filling out the FAFSA. 

Step 4: Begin filling out the FAFSA on October 1st. Much of the financial information required will be dependent on the previous year's income. Completing your taxes sooner rather than later will make this process easier when filling out the application. The deadline for the FAFSA in California is March 2nd in order to be considered for aid during the following school year. The deadline for out of state colleges are different so check the college's website.
