FAFSA DELAYED: Federal Student Aid (FSA) has announced the 2024-25 FAFSA will not be released until December 2023. BHS will host our annual FAFSA Completion Session on Tuesday, January 16th from 6:00pm- 8:00pm in the High School Library. A link to RSVP will be sent out after Christmas break.
As the new calendar year begins, your student’s high school career is only months from ending. The last four years have surely been challenging and rewarding as your student has progressed academically and personally toward graduation day. Hopefully your student’s higher education plans will provide exciting new experiences and opportunities.
With the stresses of the college application process behind you, you and your student are most likely in the midst of playing the waiting game. You’re waiting to hear back from schools, waiting to hear back from scholarships or recruiters and possibly trying to figure out how to afford it all.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the most important form to complete in order to qualify for almost all types of financial aid. Federal, state, local and private entities use the FAFSA information to determine eligibility for grants and scholarships.
This year, there are updates being made to the FAFSA and it will not be available until December 2023 for the upcoming academic year. Information will be released when it becomes available. Families should complete and file the form as soon as possible, as deadlines vary by school, state and more.
