Financial aid and scholarships are the focus of Thursday’s second Coffee with the Counselor’s session from 8-8:50 a.m. in the auditorium.

“I expect to learn the urgency of completing the FAFSA, as it is required for consideration for any financial aid, loans, or scholarships,” parent Brian Bullitt said via text.

With the window to complete a FAFSA opening on Tuesday for the senior class, Thursday’s session will help navigate students and parents through the process.

“Essentially depending on a family’s circumstances, financial aid can be provided to pay for tuition, for books, for housing, for food, for gas, transportation, so it’s important,” career and college counselor Shawna Chamberlin said. “Students can qualify for grants which is money you do not have to pay back, or loans which essentially will pay for your college bill, however loans you’re going to have to pay back.”
