It's FAFSA Time!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is due June 30, 2016. No need to stress! There are plenty of resources that can help you

Check out some of these resources!


1) The Embark website, in particular the campus descriptions of all of the USG and TCSG schools are getting updates.  You are all doing such great work - we want to spotlight it as accurately as we can for the students who are using the site to learn of what supports exist across the state.  

2) Erin, a student scholar here at Fanning, will be reaching out to you to help gather some additional information, we expect each of the calls to take about 15 minutes.  She will be asking you for questions about your campus in general as well as resources specifically for youth who have experienced foster care or homelessness.  Even if you don't have a specific program, you may have information/services that would be helpful to current and prospective students.

3)If you would like to see what information is housed on the site, you can check it out by going to the site:  www.embarkgeorgia.org  Once there, click on Statewide Network>Campus Programs.  Once there, you can search and filter to look at your campus and others to see how the information is displayed.
