Why should you file the FAFSA?
It’s the only way to apply for all federal and most states’ financial aid. Even if you have a full-ride scholarship or savings to help pay for college, filing the FAFSA is a good backup plan to cover unexpected college expenses.
Beginning in February, the Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority is sponsoring FAFSA Completion Open House events at Granite School District high schools:
Olympus High School – Wednesday, February 10 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Kearns High School – Thursday, February 11 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Granger High School – Thursday, February 11 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Skyline High School – Tuesday, February 16 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Cyprus High School – Monday, February 22 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Hunter High School – Tuesday, February 23 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Taylorsville High School – Thursday, February 25 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Cottonwood High School – Wednesday, March 9 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Completing the FAFSA is not as difficult as you may think. The whole process usually lasts less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
