What is The FAFSA?
FAFSA = Free Application for Federal Student Aid
It’s important to understand the different types of financial aid that are available to help you pay for college. Whatever types of aid you plan to apply for, it is essential that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to find out what you may be eligible for.
Every college bound senior should file a FAFSA, regardless of income. Some scholarships require a completed FAFSA before awarding money.
Corner Canyon will be hosting a FAFSA Completion Night on Tuesday, October 20th 6:00pm - 8:00pm in the Student Center Computer Lab. Attend a FAFSA Completion Night, and you can win a $500 scholarship! **Please wear a mask
