NAEHCY's Higher Education Helpline Is Now Expanded to Texting!


Starting this year, NAEHCY is partnering with Get Schooled, a national nonprofit that uses media and technology to promote high school graduation and college access rates. Students will be able to text NAEHCY to get assistance with questions about college applications, scholarships, financial aid and the FAFSA!

This resource is specifically geared towards students and young adults to provide them short answers to college access questions via text. Students can text "NAEHCY" to 335577 to have their questions answered.

 

Why Is This Important?

•    The FAFSA opened on January 1st, for the 2016-2017 academic year.

•    17 states have moved up their deadlines for financial aid applications.

•    8 states grant financial aid on a first-come, first served basis. Click here to learn which states award financial aid on a first come, first served basis. 

•    Texting can be less invasive than calling, and allows students to conveniently get help from any location. 

•    Many homeless students navigate college alone, and need additional assistance to get questions answered. 

Students can also visit www.getschooled.com for more information about college applications, scholarship searches, and financial aid resources.

NAEHCY's Higher Education page contains information on FAFSA Tips, financial aid policies, campus support programs, and more. Our Higher Education Helpline can also be accessed toll free at (855) 446-2673 or highered@naehcy.org
