Ballard Seniors You are making progress towards all of you completing the FAFSA ( but several of you still have NOT! 56.5% of you have completed it…this is still less than the amount of seniors who have completed it at Roosevelt and Garfield.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid must be completed by EVERY student who intends to apply to ANY college/university. You can complete it at and will need information from your parents. If you have any questions come see Ms. Flanagan in the Counseling Center between 9-1 each day. Each college has a finite amount of financial aid- you want to submit your financial aid documents NOW so that you can get some of that aid.

Most of the large Washington public universities have priority Financial Aid deadlines of 1/31 and 2/1 (University of Washington was on 1/15!). This means that in order to get the most financial aid possible, you need to complete and submit your FAFSA before those dates. 

For a full list of deadlines, look at the FAFSA thermometer outside the main office. See Ms. Flanagan in the Counseling Center with questions.
