The thought of the price tag that comes along with college comes with the consequence of a lot of stress. Some think that they can’t pay for college so they are not going to do it. However, there are many ways to avoid the worry. FAFSA is what many rely on to get through college. It is an application (a kind of difficult one to fill out) that applies you to an amount of FREE money that you will need for college. When you have free money, you take it! Don’t be fooled, the application is tricky and you need to make sure you have all your resources prepared! Your family and you need to sit down and view the application and see what questions you have on the application that you might not know. You are going to need your social security number, parents income, and a bunch of other words that don’t make sense. Luckily, there are ways to find the help with filling out the application. This Monday, January 26, El Diamante is setting up “Cash for College”/F.A.F.S.A. Night. There are three sessions in the EDHS Library. Students need to sign up for the presentation in the Student Services office. Seniors take advantage of this help on this application because you will need it! Even if you can’t make the session, get ahold of family members who have done this before or look at your online resources. There is online help that is beneficial as well. If you want to attend college, don’t let the price stop you. Do your research and put in the time.
