ACT - American College Testing Assessment
The ACT (American College Testing Assessment) is a standardized test used for college entrance.

FAFSA (Free Application for federal student aid)
The FAFSA is how students apply for Federal Financial Aid, including both "free money" and the best and safest loans. Federal and state aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. In short: The sooner your fill out the FAFSA, the better. To ensure maximum opportunity, the FAFSA should be submitted online within the first two weeks of January. Seniors and thier parents should fill out the form right after it opens on January 1 of their senior year. Remember, the FAFSA need to be filled out EVERY year the student is in college.
Assistance with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (External Link)* is available by contacting the school counselor.
*Be sure to use the .gov site for all FAFSA submittals; DO NOT pay to have a FAFSA complete - it's FREE!
All student families should complete the FAFSA regardless of income. The FAFSA is one of the factors used by colleges to determine school scholarships. No FAFSA, No Opportunity!
