Chances are great that you qualify for money for college that you do not have to pay back! But first, you haf-ta FAFSA! The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and 9 out of 10 students who complete it go to college. 

Every year, students leave $3 Billion in money for college unclaimed simply because they do not file the FAFSA. Get your share by signing up for an appointment to submit your FAFSA.

Remember, the FAFSA does not obligate you to accept any financial aid for college that you do not want such as student loans. 

Even better, the FAFSA also helps determine your eligibility for money from the State of Mississippi, some colleges and universities, and even some private scholarship funds.

For more information regarding graduation requirements, please see page 30 in the Student/Parent Handbook.
