It’s Not Too Late – Apply for FASFA This Summer

Did you know?  You can still apply for the 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to attend summer courses.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the application that you must complete to determine your eligibility for federal, state, or institutional student aid, such as Pell grants and work-study opportunities. Complete the FAFSA even if you are not sure that you are eligible for aid. You could be eligible for more than you expect.

It is tough to predict exactly how much money your family will receive, but complete the FAFSA even if you are not sure your will get financial aid. If you wish to apply for Central Piedmont scholarships and many other scholarships, you will need to have completed the FAFSA. Additionally, if your family’s financial situation changes while you are in school, it will be easier to determine if you qualify for any resources if you have completed the FAFSA.

If you haven’t done so already, complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. If you need help, contact a Financial Aid Representative at (704) 330-6942 or visit us online.
