Financial Aid Assistance Available To Help Osceola Students And Adults Reach Their Dreams Of Higher Education
There is money available for college!  Federal Student Aid, a part of the U.S. Department of Education, is the largest provider of student financial aid in the nation.  Seniors in high school and adults wanting to go back to school can get financial help to attend college by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the federal government's instrument for calculating need-based financial aid and the official document used by every college and university to determine eligibility for federal student aid.  The form must be completed by students and parents each year to apply for all types of federal, state, or college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, some scholarships, educational loans, and work programs.  The FAFSA deadline is May 1, 2015, but students are encouraged to check with the institution they will be attending for their FAFSA deadline as it may be different.  Read more...
