NORTHEAST METRO TECH HS offers either a Financial Aid/College Goal Night in January or Februarywww.fafsaday.org. Students can access financial aid through four sources: Federal, State, College or University, and outside private scholarships.
FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid- www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA form is done online and requires tax and financial information to determine the expected family contribution. All colleges require this form from financial aid applicants. It cannot be filed until after January 1st of the senior year and should be filed as soon as possible after that date. Each state has its own filing deadline date. Students and parents/guardians must apply for a PIN (Personal Identification Number) weeks prior to filling out the FAFSA form.
CSS PROFILE- College Scholarship Service- www.collegeboard.org Colleges Which Require CSS: https://profileonline.collegeboard.org/prf/PXRemotePartInstitutionServlet/PXRemotePartInstitutionServlet.srv
The FAFSA and CSS Profile are the two primary applications that students and parents complete for the purpose of applying for loans, grants and work-study programs. Families should plan to complete both forms if the student intends to apply to a range of colleges and universities. Some colleges and universities have their own institutional financial aid and scholarship forms.
