FAFSA Workshop


Here is some information to help clarify a topic that each senior needs to take action on prior to graduation.

FAFSA – This is your Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA is an application for federal grants and student loans. When you complete your FAFSA in Louisiana, you are also applying for TOPS. (If you apply, you are not obligated to use federal grants or student loans that are awarded or offered.)

TOPS Only Application – This application is for students, or parents, who do not want to apply for federal grants or student loans, and only want to apply for TOPS. (If you apply using this application, you can still complete the FAFSA at a later date if you change your mind.)

Waiver – This is a parish form for our documentation that shows you are waiving your right to complete the FAFSA. (If you sign a waiver, you can still complete a FAFSA or TOPS only application at a later date.)

Reminder: Send your FAFSA Completion screen or confirmation email to Ms. Miller so she can give you credit for completing your FAFSA or TOPS Only Application. If you choose not to complete a FAFSA or TOPS Only Application, you may sign a waiver. One of these three things needs to be completed. This is a graduation requirement.
