In order to graduate high school students may have to fill out a free application for federal student aid.
Lawmakers approved a measure this spring designed to get kids thinking about the help they might qualify for in order to pay for college. Democrat Rep. Katie Stuart says a waiver can be granted for those who don’t want the extra hassle.
Those against the bill say that not all schools may have enough staff to help students fill out the application, creating a burden for them to get their diploma.
The bill needs the Governor’s signature.
