APPLY FOR the HOPE Scholarship
Applying for the HOPE Scholarship is easy, but you should always check with the college you are going to attend to make sure you are completing the applications they require. Students have three options for applying for the HOPE Scholarship.
Complete the FAFSA – If you wish to be considered for financial aid other than the HOPE, you should complete the FAFSA. Accessing the FAFSA application from GAcollege411 can reduce the amount of time it takes.
Complete the gsfc HOPE Application using an electronic application (link available on GAcollege411).
Complete the gsfc HOPE Application using a printable application (link available on GAcollge411).
Always be sure to check with the college , university, or technical college to be sure if they have any deadlines which you must meet.
SENIORS…If you have been accepted to a college or have received a scholarship, please stop by the counseling office to update your page in the senior blue book! We will announce your acceptance in the Counseling Connection Senior Newsletter and on the senior bulletin board.
Do you need help completing the FAFSA?
NGCSU will once again be a host site for College Goal Sundaysm in 2012. College Goal Sunday is an event intended to assist seniors and their parentscomplete the FAFSA.
This event will be held February 12, 2012 from 2:30 – 4:30 PM in the Library Technology Center. Families can participate in this event regardless of the postsecondary institution the student plans to attend.
Many schools have a very early priority deadline for submission of the FAFSA. For instance, the NGCSUpriority deadline is March 17th. Students submitting the FAFSA by their school’s priority deadline have a better chance of receiving some of the limited types of aid like SEOG and Federal Work Study and a better chance their complete aid package will be in place by the time fall bills are due.Here is a link to a College Goal Sunday flyer:
