Winter break is right around the corner…which means the first semester of classes are coming to a close and the second semester will soon commence. Here’s some dates to be aware of as we wrap up this semester and get ready for the next one.
If you haven’t already, please complete your FAFSA application as soon as possible! The FAFSA application determines a student’s federal student loan eligibility, along with a student’s ability to receive Federal Pell Grant funds. Additionally, it is supremely important to submit the FAFSA before February 1st—the priority deadline—to become eligible for all state grants that are also available to students.
