The New FAFSA
As you may have heard, the FAFSA will look and feel different this year. The revamped FAFSA, which Federal Student Aid is calling the “Better FAFSA,” will expand eligibility for financial aid to many more students but also require districts and schools to change some of what they’ve done before.
One key thing to know: the FAFSA will not open on October 1 and will be delayed until sometime in December.
The California way to save for college – A flexible and tax-advantaged savings plan for your child’s higher education.
Each year, the California Student Aid Commission requests nominations for California high school counselors who demonstrate effectiveness serving students in preparing for and pursuing higher education. Candidates may be nominated by the district and county leadership, a fellow school counselor/teacher, a school principal, or another site administrator. The Arthur S. Marmaduke High School Counselor Award, which includes a plaque and a $1,500 check, is presented at the awardee’s high school or virtually via Zoom. The application deadline is October 31.
