FAFSA - Students Should Know
While you can access or begin your FAFSA without your FSA ID, the first thing FAFSA on the Web users should do is apply for their FSA ID. This will avoid extra steps later in the application process. Check StartWithFAFSA.org post for more details.
Parents Should Know
Parents of dependent students need their own FSA ID to add information to or sign a student’s FAFSA. Check StartWithFAFSA.org post for more details.

TRANSCRIPT ORDER FORMS - To request copies of a student's transcript, order forms made be found by Lanette's desk, outside Mrs. Stephens' office, or downloaded here. Please turn in request forms to Mrs. Stephens. The first three are free, thereafter will be $1.00 each.
SELECTIVE SERVICE - Males within 30 days of their 18th birthday, must register with the Selective Service System. See Mrs. Stephens to register or go to www.sss.gov. It's the law.
HOW TO GO - www.college.gov was designed by students for students and features first-person accounts of students who overcame challenges to going to college such as peer pressure, lack of family support and financial barriers. It provides relevant, comprehensive information about why to go, how to go, and how to pay for college or other postsecondary education programs. Young people who may not have considered higher education a viable option will be engaged, informed, and inspired to create their own "roadmap" to college.
