FAFSA Financial Aid

FAFSA--Free Application for Federal Student Aid
The FAFSA is a free service offered by the United States Department of Education.  It allows students to apply for federal grants, loans and work study programs to be used toward post-secondary education.  The FAFSA does use family income and tax information to determine eligibility, so the ideal time to apply is in January/February (about 6-8 months before you plan on attending college).
Desert Ridge is committed to helping our students find ways to help pay for college.  The first step for most scholarship and financial aid applications is a completed FAFSA.  Please take the time to fill out the FAFSA and do further research, if necessary.  See the links below for more information.
