Financial Aid Application Reminder

December is a good month for students to finalize their financial aid application. To support your work with students, here are a few reminders for the senior class:

Financial Aid: Students will soon start receiving acceptance letters. Help your students explore financial aid and scholarships packages at the colleges they have applied. This will give them a good grasp of how much they can save because aid packages differ from one school to the next. 

Meeting December deadlines: The deadline for most college application is in December. Remind your students to submit their college application and encourage them to keep track of all the deadlines for all the schools they intend to apply.

Finalize all documentation for the application packet: By now students should have written essays, taken exams, and should have secured letters of recommendation. December is also a good time to confirm test scores have been officially submitted to every potential college.
