To apply for most financial aid — including federal and state student grants, work-study, and loans — you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Although this financial aid form may seem complex, there are many free resources to help you. And completing the form is easier than it used to be, thanks to the new IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

- If your student is registering for the ACT for the first time since taking it in February of junior year, you will want to make sure that on their registration they indicate that they HAVE taken the test but HAVE NOT registered before.
- Your student will need their ACT ID to create their account. This should be available to them on their ACT score report from the February test or on their RenWeb profile. If you can't find it, please contact Ms. Emily LaForge or Mr. Mark Majick.
