FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid form
October 1, the FAFSA form opens up for seniors and their families to begin completing. Financial Aid money is awarded based on merit and/or need and is typically distributed quickly, so the sooner you submit your paperwork, the more likely you are to be awarded a good financial aid package.
Additionally, many universities use your FAFSA information to determine if you qualify for the aid the university is distributing. January 15 is the priority deadline for many universities and is when the first round of awards are determined. Check with the universities are you are applying to in order to ensure you are not missing out on the priority deadline.
In order to complete the FAFSA form, students and parents will need to create a FSA ID. Students and parents will need separate usernames, passwords, and email addresses.
For more information about financial aid check the following sites:
Need a Transcript?
Current WHS students: Send an email to Mrs. Benson and/or Mrs. Holtman that includes the name of the university or entity the transcript needs to be sent to and whether or not you need a paper copy as well.
Former WHS students: Please call the WHS office at 325-651-7790 and Mrs. Benson or Mrs. Holtman will be happy to help you with your request.
Due to FERPA regulations, the counselor cannot request a college transcript on your behalf. Students are responsible for requesting transcripts from Angelo Statue University and/or Howard College.
