Refer your students to sites that will help them prepare for college


In March, students and parents are busy with many different tasks. Senior students and their parents may still be completing the paperwork in the financial aid process. Juniors may be registering for spring college entrance exams, preparing for the ACT and SAT, and starting the college search process. The following sites may be helpful to you and your students.

FAFSA on the Web
This is the site of the online FAFSA. By using the Internet application students and parents will get their results 7 to 14 days faster than using a mailed paper application.

ACT and College Board
