Plan Your Future
The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) opens October 1st of your senior year. It is important to complete this early as many colleges/universities begin to award financial aid once students are accepted. You will need to check with the school's website for specifics.
The December SAT/ACT should be the latest date seniors take the exam. The College Board and Khan Academy are great online resources for last minute tutorials.
*If you regularly receive accommodations on tests, contact your counselor for information on applying for appropriate accommodations on SAT and ACT.
