SENIORS: Financial Aid Help Resources 2021-22
WHAT IS FINANCIAL AID: A variety of financial aid sources are available to help you pay for college or career school. Financial aid can come from federal, state, school, and private sources to help you pay for college or career school. Your eligibility depends on your Expected Family Contribution, your year in school, your enrollment status, and the cost of attendance at the school you will be attending. The financial aid office at your college or career school will determine how much financial aid you are eligible to receive. If you have specific questions about your financial aid, be sure to contact the financial aid office at the campus you plan to attend.
COMPLETE THE FAFSA FORM: You can begin filling out the FAFSA application for 2022-23 (your freshman year of college) as of OCTOBER 1st!
Financial Aid Presentation/Workshop - MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th, 2021 @ 6:00 pm in the PHS Acuity Auditorium: Sue Bialk - Associate Director of Financial Aid @ Lakeland University will be providing a workshop for students and parents to assist with completing the FAFSA.
College Goal Wisconsin Workshop (in-person & virtual options)
College Goal Wisconsin helps students put their hands on money for college by accessing federal and state financial aid. The statewide program is designed to assist students and families in the timely completion of their Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA). For the fall of 2020, College Goal Wisconsin will carry out its mission by hosting six virtual 2021-2022 FAFSA completion events, beginning on October 7. The FAFSA completion events will connect students and families with FAFSA experts to guide them through the FAFSA-completion process. During the event, participants will view a video introducing them to the financial aid process, after which volunteers will be available virtually to field their questions as they complete their FAFSAs. Each session will begin at 6:00 p.m., and should wrap up by around 7:30 p.m. Volunteers will receive a how-to guide in coming weeks with additional information.
