The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the initial step in determining your eligibility for financial aid.
The above web site will assist high school students & their families in learning more about financial aid. Other good resources include:
- Financial Aid Offices – talk to the financial aid office at the college you plan to attend
- College Information Centers – including UW HELP
A "Needs Analysis" is Conducted
Financial aid is offered to those students who illustrate a need based on federal criteria. Financial aid can be broken down into three major categories: 1 ) grants, 2) loans and 3) work study. Items one and two require an application (FAFSA) which will be available in January. The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is on online process which may not be submitted until after the first of the year. Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov.
To obtain information on student aid for college and completing the FAFSA contact FSAIC (Federal Student Aid Information Center) at 800-4FED-AID ..... 800-433-3243
In addition, North High School has a Financial Aid Night for parents and students who are interested in learning more about ways to pay for college. This night is held in early January. Check the "Take Note ... Calendars" link of this web site and/or the Raider Report for the precise date.
UW-Sheboygan will once again host an event for high school seniors, returning college students and their
parents, and adult learners to file their 2012-13 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online
with attending Financial Aid and Student Services representatives to assist. This is a UW-Sheboygan offering
and is not associated with any other FAFSA-affiliated event organizations. Use of campus computer labs,
refreshments, and technical and filing assistance will be provided. This FAFSA event will be held on Friday,
February 24, and Saturday, February 25, 2012, in the Acuity Technology Center at UW-Sheboygan. It will
take approximately 90 minutes to complete the online FAFSA application. Participants will be assisted through
the process. The hours will be 4:00-6:30 PM on Friday, and again 9:00-11:30 AM and 12:00-2:30
PM on Saturday. We hope this schedule will allow families who missed other FAFSA filing events an
opportunity to enjoy assisted filing for this all-important step in their children taking the next step into post-
secondary education. Utilizing the last weekend in February will also allow students to have their FAFSAs filed
before the March financial aid filing deadlines of many colleges and universities.
Thank you for your consideration.
