FAFSA/Scholarship Opportunities

Every senior should make sure to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), your FAFSA must be completed in order to receive scholarships AND to obtain student loans! Remember the FAFSA application period runs from October 1 through March 2. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Guidance Office at (714) 662-7485.
It is recommended that you create your account before starting your FAFSA form. Your account username and password combination, called your FSA ID, gives you access to certain information online and allows you to sign your FAFSA® form and promissory notes electronically. While you can get your FSA ID as you’re completing the FAFSA form online, getting it ahead of time and using it to fill out the FAFSA form on fafsa.gov cuts down on errors and delays.
