Believe it or not, it’s a matter of months until your high school career comes to an end. Whether graduation is a dream or nightmare for you, you still need to face reality and complete a few things before the big day arrives. As a college-bound student myself, here’s my essential checklist for high school seniors.
Yes, you heard it right. As a senior, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). As the name implies, this application does not cost a dime to complete. Most schools even offer assistance to students. (Trust me, it is normal to feel intimated by this application.) By completing this process, you are opening yourself up to various federal grants and loans. Keep in mind to stay away from loans as much as possible!
- Insider Info: Some scholarships require you to fill out the FAFSA in order receive their funds, so it is vital to start on it as soon as it becomes available in January.
