CSA #21 Step by Step Guide to Completing the FAFSA (Seniors)

October 21, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Filling out and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is all about being prepared with the right documents. Learn exactly what information is necessary to complete the form correctly, and find out how you can use the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to easily submit the form! You will not complete your FAFSA during this academy, if you seek assistance with completing your FAFSA, please register to attend a CFNC FAFSA Day session from October 12-October 15.

For many students, completing the FAFSA is the first step in the financial aid process, and submitting a FAFSA is free.  Most states and colleges use FAFSA information to award financial aid. For instructions on how to complete the FAFSA online, visit www.fafsa.gov.  Visit the web sites of colleges where you are applying to determine which forms they need to consider you for financial aid.

Time: 6:00 PM

Seniors are required to attend 2 Crosby Senior Academies to fulfill the Crosby Senior Academy requirement.  Once you register, if you find that you can no longer attend this academy, you must cancel your registration 24 hours prior to the academy through your student portal. Registered scholars who do not attend will jeopardize their status in the Program.

A brief primer on Crosby Scholars Senior Academies:  Academies are held annually over a 6-month period (July to December); students must attend two and are free to choose those that best suit their needs and interests; the most up-to-date information on the academies is found in the student portal; while they are a program requirement, academies are best viewed as opportunities to gain knowledge and skills that guide students through senior year and into post-secondary education.
