This Thursday night, senior students and their parents are encouraged to come out for an informational session on financial aid for college.
College tuition has been on the rise for many years, and affording to post-high school education is a challenge for many. One way to help afford college is through filing for FAFSA, a government financial aid source. According to Clinton High School Principal Jerry Wayne, Thursday night, parents and students can learn more about what FAFSA is all about.
Guidance counselors and other people familiar with FAFSA forms will be on hand. According to Wayne, parents may want to bring along tax forms and other documents to receive first hand assistance with the process.
Applying for FAFSA comes along with many common wrong perceptions and questions, and according to Wayne, the meeting is a great opportunity to get some of those questions answered.
Thursday night, things open up at 6 pm and will go until 8 pm in the high school library.
