For High School Seniors

The Office of Financial Aid has put together a simple checklist to help high school seniors complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and navigate the financial aid process. In addition, we will begin to offer one-on-one Zoom meetings with students/families at times that are most convenient to the student, up to and including evenings and Saturday mornings.

Schedule Appointment

During these meetings, students will be able to sign up for their FSA ID, complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA, and apply for admission to Shepherd. Of course, the student can complete all of these things independently, but we want you to know that the Office of Financial Aid is available for those who may need more assistance. Review the High School Senior Financial Aid Checklist and *Get Ram Ready!*
