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 October, the Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority is sponsoring FAFSA Completion Open House events at Granite School District high schools:
|Skyline High School||Thursday, October 5||6 to 8 p.m.
|Taylorsville High School||Tuesday, October 10||5 to 8 p.m.
|Cyprus High School||Wednesday, November 8||4 to 7 p.m.
|Olympus High School||Monday, November 13||5 to 8 p.m.|

|Granger High School||Wednesday, November 15||5 to 8 p.m.|
|Hunter High School||Wednesday, November 15||5 to 8 p.m.
|Kearns High School||Wednesday, November 15||5 to 8 p.m.|
Tax information from last year (2016) is required to complete the FAFSA.
Completing the FAFSA is not as difficult as you may think. The whole process usually lasts less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
