FAFSA, CSS, college specific financial aide, etc... ALL colleges and universities have very specific deadlines and sources for available money; be sure to check with EACH university about specific deadlines, what forms of financial aide access need to be filled out and how exactly to access financial resources. Independence High School counselors can answer general questions, but it is up to each family to speak directly to the specific college/university.
