Apply Nevada

09 Sep Information about Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Clark County School District high school seniors and juniors are encouraged to learn more about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There is no cost to students or their families to complete the application.

Even if you are not sure about attending college, students are encouraged to complete a FAFSA just in case there may be a need for possible financial assistance consideration for college.

Attend one or more of our Fall 2020 Apply Nevada! FAFSA Nights and be prepared to complete your FAFSA.

These events will all be held virtually via Webex. You will hear about general financial aid information and then each of the NSHE colleges and universities will describe scholarship and funding information specific to their institution.

All programs will start promptly at 6:00 pm. Registration is required. Links are located on the homepage, apply.nevada.edu.
