Financial Aid

    FAFSA Delayed: Federal Student Aid (FSA) has announced the 2024-25 FAFSA will not be released until December 2023. 

    FSA ID: If you are planning a FAFSA Completion Event, please make sure anyone contributing to the FAFSA, both student and parents, have their FSA IDs created and verified prior to the event. We suggest creating the FSA ID at least 2-4 days prior to completing the FAFSA since the verification process takes this long. A FAFSA cannot be completed using an FSA ID that has not been verified.

    • The FAFSA opens in December.  We recommend that all families complete it as soon as possible to be considered for any need-based financial aid.  Many colleges and universities also require completion of the FAFSA prior to awarding any merit scholarships.  Follow the link to the right to create your FAFSA ID and complete the FAFSA .  Some colleges also require completion of the CSS Profile.  Click the link to the right to learn more about this additional form required by some colleges.


    • Please check the college tab in Naviance for lists of scholarships that East has received.  The list is at the bottom of the "College" tab, under scholarship list and scholarship match.   Also, there are helpful scholarship links to the right on this page.
