High School Counselors
Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA beginning October 1st or as soon as possible thereafter, in their senior year of high school. As an alternative to the Family FAFSA Workshops held in the evening, Senior Set Ups will be held October - December to help seniors to receive professional assistance starting their FAFSA. Students should create an FSA ID at least 1 week prior to the workshop, however, if they come to the workshop prepared with their social security number, we will provide assistance in creating the FSA ID. Depending on the time available, we will encourage students to create or review their Parchment account (if you are a Parchment school), and search for private scholarships. You are encouraged to provide the following information to your students.
Download the FSAID Worksheet (provide to students prior to workshop so they can keep record of the FSA ID information)
Download the FAFSA Checklist (provide to students prior to workshop so they know items to bring to the workshop and the items parents will need to finish the FAFSA)
