Seniors, if you still have not applied for the FAFSA, you still have time to apply.  If you are going to BYU, SLCC, UVU, Tooele Tech, Dixie, USU or Weber, make sure that you get your FAFSA application done.  You will need your 2017 taxes to complete this application.

Every year there are millions of unclaimed dollars in grant money.  Even if you think you may not qualify, this is also how you qualify for workstudy and student loans. If you have questions about applying, please come see me after the break.  School will be back in session on March 25th.
