FAFSA Applications Open October 1 Every student who will enroll in a post-secondary education program should complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Even if their family income/assets prevent them from receiving need-based aid, many merit-based programs require completion of the FAFSA. More than $2.6 billion in potential aid to an estimated 660,000 college students went unawarded in 2018. St. Scholastica will be hosting a virtual “Financial Aid 101” to help our families navigate FAFSA. October 7 @ 6:00PM **YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE PLANNING TO ATTEND ST. SCHOLASTICA TO GO TO THIS EVENT.
