February 1 - April 30, 2015
College Cash Campaign is to encourage our school around FAFSA completion and to help students navigate the college-going process during senior year. Finding the money to attend postsecondary education can be the biggest barrier to many students. This campaign helps break down this barrier. While FAFSA completion is only one step in the college-going process it is the only way for students to unlock their access to federal loans and grants, statewide scholarships and grants, and often institutional and community based scholarships and grants.

Times and Dates to where you can file FAFSA:
February 24th: Muskegon Community College (231-777-0366) at 4:30pm-6:30pm
Contact Muskegon Community College because they are going to hold FAFSA Fridays which is open to anyone to come in and financial aid officers will help one on one with filing.
If you need a location or any help with FAFSA, contact Ms. Rettig.
College Cash Campaign Events:
To encourage FAFSA completion, students who file before February 1st will be entered into a drawing. There will be four $25 giftcard prizes.
If the Senior Class can reach 95% completion of filing FAFSA, then the whole Senior Class will receive a pizza party.
In order to be entered in the raffle and towards the 85% completion, Ms. Rettig will need proof of filing, like an email confirming FAFSA completion.
For every student that does file FAFSA, the student will receive a small prize. In order to receive that prize, the student needs to show proof of filing.
