FAFSA updates

Wow - Good news about changes to the FAFSA.

First - you can now submit your FAFSA results for 10 schools! It was limited to 6 schools last year.

Second - when you complete the Fafsa online the system will determine your eligibility for 3 new programs:

ACG - Academic Competitiveness Grant
SMART - National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant
TEACH Grant - Teacher Education Assitance for College and Higher Education

For ACG and SMART you must qualify for a Pell Grant in order to be eligible.

Please help get the word out to any low income families you know. There are programs out there to help make college affordable for children from those families.
