See our pages on Naviance for more information.  Also, under the "colleges" tab, scroll to the bottom for a link to a list of all scholarships we receive by mail and e-mail in our office. You may also sign up for the National Scholarship Search and Fastweb search engines.  

Applying for financial aid

Go to StudentAid.gov/fsaid to request a FAFSA ID that you will need for your next step below.

To apply for student financial aid from the federal government, including federal grants and loans, and work-study, you will need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There is no charge for submitting this form. The FAFSA is also required by all state and many school student assistance programs.  See the FAFSA link on Naviance Family Connection's homepage.

If you plan to attend college in the fall, you may submit a FAFSA beginning October 1, but no sooner. You will be required to report income tax information from the previous year.  To meet the deadline for Maryland, you should submit the form no later than March 1. Some Colleges have earlier deadlines always check

Some private colleges and universities will require one or more supplemental forms to obtain information not included on the FAFSA. They may have their own forms or they may ask you to complete the College Board's CSS PROFILE form. You should register for your CSS Profile at least two weeks before the earliest college or scholarship priority application date you need to meet.  This date will be the college's deadline for submitting a completed Profile application.

Look out for the date of our fall "Paying for College Night" in the PTSA bulletin and email.
