Importance of Filing a FAFSA

posted on Thursday, November 1, 2018 in  Parent Newsletter

Whether this is your first student to ever attend college, or your fifth, November is Financial Aid Awareness Month. Plan ahead! FAFSA are due by July but it is important to fill them out sooner. This will give you and your student a leg-up in financial planning. Paying for college can be stressful, but in completing the FAFSA form early, your student will know sooner rather than later how much of tuition will be covered. This practice can relives stress and allows your student to research other methods to help pay for college and determine how many scholarships to apply for. Please reach out to the Financial Aid Office here at Hawkeye Community College, or High School Guidance Counselors.
