As a senior at SECTA, one of the most important steps this year is to prepare for college by filling out the FAFSA form. Even if you don’t think you need to, ALL scholarships and financial opportunities at colleges and universities happen via the FAFSA. Fill it out once, and all the information will be available to ALL colleges and universities, as well as, all scholarship possibilities. Again… fill it out once, it’s available to all! You will have to update the FAFSA each year you are in school, however it is this first year that is the most challenging.
