Students must apply for financial aid each award year, which is available after January 1. The FHCHS Financial Aid Office must receive the results from the FAFSA and have a completed online FHCHS Financial Aid Application. The student must be accepted to the College. All material should be submitted by April 9, 2012, for best award consideration for the 2012-2013 award year. All students needing to use financial aid for registration purposes must complete the financial aid process at least six weeks before the first day of classes of the trimester for which they wish to enroll. See the calendar for the exact deadline dates.
Students who wish to have a Stafford Loan processed and who will not be enrolled for the following term of the award year (award year is fall, spring, and summer) need to make sure that all documentation is turned into the Financial Aid Office at least four weeks prior to the end of the trimester. This deadline is to guarantee that the dollars will be on the student’s account by the end of the term.
