Seniors can learn more about FAFSA with the FAFSA workshop on Wednesday in the cafeteria from 6 – 7:45 p.m. “The purpose of this workshop is to helps students understand FAFSA and how to apply,” counselor Ryan Kiefer said.

To aid the Class of 2024 with the process of filling out federal student aid forms, the counseling department is hosting a FAFSA workshop on Wednesday in the cafeteria from 6 – 7:45 p.m.

“FAFSA is an important part of the financial aid for students,” counselor Ryan Kiefer said. “The purpose of this workshop is to helps students understand FAFSA and how to apply.”

Students and parents are asked that they bring a chromebook if they plan on filling out the form during the information session. FISD parent Younkyung Cho believes this will be a helpful meeting for parents sending kids to college for the first time.

“I remember when I was sending my first child to college and not knowing how student loans and federal aid really worked,” Cho said. “I went to a similar type of college Q&A and I highly recommend that anyone who feels overwhelmed go as well.”

Collin College’s Financial Aid Department will also be at the meeting to help explain the changes to the FAFSA form.

“The only difficult thing is that the website has been under maintenance quite a bit,” senior Saanvi Nair said. “I did fill out a FAFSA form a few weeks ago and the changes made it quicker than I expected.”
