Financial aid for high school seniors

Beginning this month, many high school seniors across New Hampshire will turn their attention to an important step in the college application process; applying for financial aid for college. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required by all colleges and universities across the nation to determine a student’s eligibility for federal financial aid, federal education grants and for some universities, institutional grants and assistance. The NHHEAF Network Organizations’ Center for College Planning offers N.H. families free assistance with completing the FAFSA in their Concord office. College counselors also provide assistance in understanding postsecondary financing options beyond federal and institutional aid. To register for a FAFSA filing appointment, or for assistance with a FAFSA question, please call 800-525-2577, ext. 119. For other important tips when filing the FAFSA, visit the Financial Aid section of NHHEAF’s website at nhheaf.org. For more information about the FAFSA, please visit fafsa.gov.
