EducationQuest’s February College Planning Bulletin

Below is info for seniors from the EducationQuest’s February College Bulletin:

Seniors…make sure you complete the FAFSA process

Getting financial aid for college involves more than completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete each step of the process so that you don’t miss out on money for college.

  • If you haven’t already, complete your 2020-21 FAFSA at FAFSA.gov using 2018 income tax data.
  • Expect a Student Aid Report (SAR) via an email link.
  • You might receive a verification notice from the college(s) you listed on your FAFSA.
  • Watch for financial aid award notifications.

Watch your email and student portal carefully for important details about admission and financial aid.
