Students who want to be given priority consideration for state of Michigan financial aid programs now have some extra time to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury. Commonly known as the “FAFSA,” this application is a critical step when applying for grants, scholarships and other forms of financial assistance. Academic Year 2021-22 FAFSA submissions now received at the federal processor on or before May 1 -- rather than the original March 1 deadline -- are given priority consideration for the Michigan Competitive Scholarship and Michigan Tuition Grant. “Completing the FAFSA should be on top of everyone’s list when applying for college financial aid,” said Robin Lott, executive director of Treasury’s Office of Postsecondary Financial Planning. “We are hopeful that this deadline change will help families who have been faced with challenges during the pandemic. Please do not delay and complete this free application today.” Students who wait to complete their FAFSA after the new May 1 deadline may not receive all the financial aid they could have been entitled to receive. Prior to completing the FAFSA online, the student and at least one parent or guardian must obtain a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) at www.fafsa.gov. This ID serves as a legal signature and confirms an applicant’s identity when accessing financial aid information through certain U.S. Department of Education websites. To get started with the FAFSA, go to www.fafsa.gov. To learn more about State of Michigan scholarships and grant programs, visit MI Student Aid’s website at www.michigan.gov/mistudentaid.

We would like to remind students to continue to log into their emails, google classrooms, etc. Please continue to work on your daily classwork and participate in offered zoom lessons as these will help you to stay on track academically. For MS/HS students, grades earned during this semester will be recorded on your transcript as you have earned them. We understand this is a different way of learning, but we still expect each of you to be accountable for your classwork and your grades. If you have any questions, please reach out to your teachers through email, or feel free to contact our office. Again, stay safe Jayhawks and we look forward to seeing you all in the near future.
