Scholarship and Financial Aid Information
Hello Seniors and Parents! Please make sure you are checking with the colleges you're applying to for their individual financial aid deadlines and application due dates.
A good idea, recommended by a college admissions counselor, is to get all application materials sent to your colleges by Halloween! A scary deadline, but very do-able for seniors! Seniors should be asking their selected individuals (teachers, coaches, etc.) for letters of recommendation and gathering a list of all their activities done throughout high school.
Fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) starting October 1st.
Local scholarships are coordinated mostly in April and May. They will be added to the Google Drive folder as they are received. I will also email the applications to students on their Belpre HS email accounts!
This page will be updated throughout the year. Check back often for the latest scholarship information
November 1 is a common early decision deadline for applications.
December 1st and February 1st are common final decision, FAFSA, and institution scholarship deadlines. Please note that the FAFSA application opens October 1st! Visit http://www.fafsahelpoh.org/ for more!
May 1 is a common "I’m definitely attending your institution and here’s my deposit $ deadline."
Many schools have application fees. Here’s a link to an application for a fee waiver http://www.nacacnet.org/studentinfo/feewaiver/Documents/ApplicationFeeWaiver.pdf
To request a transcript to be sent to a school, please use Parchment
Common Post-Secondary Destinations with Estimated Due Dates and Websites---reminder must have school app completed and FAFSA filed before applying for financial aid at institutions; some institutions automatically consider you for scholarships if you have met their priority deadlines while others you have to separately apply; as always dialogue with your institution destination staff for all deadlines!!!
