College Bound Seniors and Parents: This is a reminder that you need to watch for information from the college(s) you applied to. If you haven’t applied, you need to as soon as possible. Remember the college websites are full of helpful information. Once you apply, the college will contact you about their scholarships, financial aid, housing, and other important information. Make sure you are doing everything they tell you to do and watch their deadlines. Also, make sure you have completed the FAFSA at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa and completed the Arkansas Scholarship application at https://scholarships.adhe.edu/. Christmas break might be a good opportunity to complete some of these tasks.
