FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION

STEP 1:

In order to have access to the Federal Student Aid's only system you will need to create an FSA ID, which serves as your legal signature.

Only students qualifying for FAFSA should sign up for the FSA ID. Students who qualify for WAFSA (Dreamers or DACA) do not need to create an FSA ID. Parents who do not have documentation but have students who do and qualify for FAFSA will still need to sign up for an FSA ID. When asked for social security number, please enter zeros.

STEP 2:

Both the FAFSA and WAFSA applications will open January 1st. There will be a FAFSA/WAFSA Workshop on January 11 at the high school. A financial aid adviser from Big Bend will be here to help answer any questions as students and parents fill out the FAFSA or WAFSA. You may fill out the FAFSA or WAFSA before you have completed your taxes for the year 2015 by providing estimates. However, you will need to go back and update your information once you have completed your taxes.

If you have any questions, please contact the school counselor.
