What are two new trends that can set you apart from other applicants?

Uncategorized

We are seeing that a lot of colleges take note of students that have held a job during the summer and/or have part-time employment after school or on weekends.

Students that show some sort of passion for a particular interest or talent….it could be music, pottery, or tutoring kids after school, tend to be more competitive in the college admissions process. Where you spend your free time should be where your heart is!

2014 – 2015 FAFSA changes

Uncategorized

The 2014–15 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSASM) will include various changes based on public feedback and U.S. Department of Education initiatives. Below are a few of the
more noticeable changes.

1. The FAFSA will include two new tax return filing status questions for students and
parents.
2. The FAFSA will collect information from both of the dependent student’s legal
(biological and/or adoptive) parents if the parents live together, regardless of the marital status or gender of the parents.
3. Consistent with the Supreme Court decision on the Defense of Marriage Act, the 2014–15 FAFSA will include guidance explaining that marriage includes both legal marriages of persons of the opposite sex and legal marriages of persons of the same sex in jurisdictions where it is allowed.

As a reminder: FAFSA on the Web at www.fafsa.gov allows applicants to access their IRS tax information and have it automatically inserted into the FAFSA. The 2014–15 FAFSA will offer this functionality via the IRS Data Retrieval Tool beginning February 2, 2014.
