 Seniors & Parents of Seniors!  Chances are great that you qualify for money for college that you do not have to pay back!  But first, you haf-ta FAFSA!  FAFSA us the the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and 9 out of 10 students who complete it go to college.
     Don't worry about filling out a complicated form-you can get FREE assistance with your FAFSA on Monday, February 20th here at school.  But you must sign up for an appointment with Mrs. Cutrer in Student Services.  
     Every year, students leave $3 Billion in money for college unclaimed simply because they do not file the FAFSA.  Get your share by signing up  for an appointment to submit your FAFSA.
    Remember, the FAFSA does not obligate you to accept any financial aid for college that you do not want such as student loans.
    Even better, the FAFSA also helps determine your legibility for money form the State of Mississippi, some colleges and universities, and even some private scholarship funds.
    Get your appointment today!  Space is limited!
