Seniors will be receiving a Guide to Federal Student Aid and other materials as soon as they become available.  If you need assistance with this application, there are several resources available to you and your parents.    

 There will be a Financial Aid Workshop on Thursday, January 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the FHS auditorium.  A representative from the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance will discuss financial aid and address any concerns and questions you or your parents have regarding the FAFSA form.

 There is a free assistance program offered at Southeastern LA University as well as other local colleges on Sunday, February 16 from 2-4 p.m.  This event, College Goal Sunday, is designed to assist with completing the FAFSA form. 

 Please remember you must complete the FAFSA to apply for financial aid and TOPS.  Many colleges have a priority deadline as early as March so we encourage you not to wait.  In addition, there are limited funds available in some Federal aid programs and funding is administered on a first come, first serve basis.  Please apply as soon as possible.
