FINANCIAL AID ASSISTANCE NIGHT
For Seniors and their parents
Monday, February 11
4:00 -7 p.m. Chaparral H.S. Career Computer Lab
College Financial Aid Advisors will be on campus to assist seniors and their parents complete the FAFSA online.
Student and/or parent(s) will need the following documents:
- 2012 federal tax returns, including W-2 information for student, parent(s)/guardian(s)
- Student and Parent(s) Social Security Number
- Alien Registration Number if not a U.S. citizen
- Records of untaxed income (such as Social Security Benefits, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)benefits and veteran benefits)
- Information on savings, investments, and business and farm assets for student and parent(s)
Federal student aid is awarded based on information students and parents provide on the FAFSA. If you do not file a FAFSA, federal money is not available to you. The most costly education is the one not begun.
BEWARE OF SCHOLARSHIP AND FINANCIAL AID SCAMS!
Be cautious of scholarship and financial aid organizations that charge fees for their services.
Check with your counselor if you are not sure that a financial aid or scholarship offer you have received is legitimate.
