THE RACE IS ON - GET FREE MONEY FOR COLLEGE!
You may qualify for up to $5,815 a year in FREE federal Pell Grant money.
The Department of Education has moved the opening date for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from Jan. 1 to Oct. 1 this year and is allowing students and families to use their prior-year tax return to complete their FAFSA.
While the earlier opening date gives students more time to complete their FAFSA, many colleges have moved their priority deadlines for submitting the FAFSA to earlier in the year, with some as early as Dec. 1.
To meet this need, HISD’s College Readiness Department is launching their FAFSA Roadshow initiative in the late fall this year. High schools will be hosting FAFSA/TASFA completion workshops, called FAFSA Roadshows, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 18.
ON NOV 15th the ROADSHOW arrives at HHS!
Students and families should complete this worksheet before attending.
