Timeline for Senior Year

We know that the process can be intimidating, but here is a timeline to help you get organized for this year.

Here is a Comprehensive Guide to College Admission and Financial Aid.

Financial Aid

Attention, Seniors! Fill out your financial aid forms starting October 1st, 2018. All students must file FAFSA through here.

If you are applying to any colleges that require the CSS Profile, please click this link.

For underclassmen:It's never too early to get a better sense of what your family will be expected to contribute to college. It is important to note that the financial aid estimator only calculates your estimated need, not how much of that need will be met by each school you apply to.Use FAFSA4Caster to learn more.

All colleges and universities are required to have a Net Price Calculator on their website. A simple search will allow you to get a better sense of what families will pay to attend a specific university or college. Click here to learn more.
