What is the FAFSA? Affording College in Michigan
FAFSA- Free Application for Federal Student Aid Information
Oakland University Financial Services offers a variety of financial aid events available to high school students and their families.
Presentations and workshops are available for those who wish to learn more about the financial aid process, completing the FASA, or evaluating financial aid awards.
To all parents/guardians of students who are seniors:
Please remember to encourage your child to complete the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ beginning October 1st of their senior year.
