Financial Aid Information


NEVER pay to apply for financial aid or scholarships.   Financial Aid is a free service to help low-income students afford to go to college.  There are quite a few scams that take advantage of uninformed individuals. If you have any doubts about a scholarship or financial aid opportunity, see one of the school counselors!
