  • Seniors - as you plan for "life after high school", one very important step is to complete the FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Even if you don't know what college you will attend, or even if you are going to college, you should fill out the FAFSA.  It will determine if you qualify for federal grants, loans or work study.  Don't think you can afford college? Complete the FAFSA and see if you might get a grant!  Federal financial aid can be used at any accredited college in the US - including Manatee Technical College and State College of Florida.

    For the Class of 2024, the FAFSA is now open! Get it done ASAP!

    Understanding Financial Aid
    FAFSA website
    Create your FSA ID (how you will electronically sign the FAFSA)

    In addition to FAFSA, all seniors should complete the Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA) to be considered for state grants, including Florida Bright Futures. It only takes a few minutes but should be done before graduation. The FFAA for the Class of 2024 opened October 1, 2023.

    And seniors, check the MHS Scholarship List weekly for available scholarships. Apply for as many as you can! The list is on the College and Career Center page of this website.

    See Mrs. Norris, College and Career Advisor with any questions about financial aid for college!
