AGSD 4 Day School Week- FAQ’S

Potential 4-Day School Week - FAQ Link

Seniors and Parents of Seniors!

This is the time to fill out the FAFSA! If you plan on going to college next year, then you need to fill out something called the FAFSA, the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid." This is not a loan - the grant money you receive from this does not have to be repaid, and it is free to apply. The sooner you fill this out the better. Why? Because if you fill it out sooner, you may be able to get more grants (money) that will help you pay for college.. Even if there's the slightest chance you may go to college next year, you need to fill this out.

To fill out the FAFSA, here's what parent(s)/legal guardian(s) AND the senior will need to have with them:

Social Security Number

Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)

2020 federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)

Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)

Records of untaxed income (if applicable)

For more information or for help in completing the FAFSA, contact the Counseling Office at 417-751-9616 or 417-751-9605.
