ACT for Parents

The ACT is a national college admissions examination developed by The ACT Corporation and is used to measure English, mathematics, science, and reading skills. Many colleges and universities utilize this tool when deciding on applicants as a supplement to high school transcripts to help assess a student's ability to complete college-level work. The ACT website allows students to register for the test, take practice tests to prepare for the exam, search for colleges and careers of interest, and more. Additionally, the website has tools specifically for helping parents and guardians aid their children in the college application process. Visit www.ACT.org/path/parent/ for more information.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA is a document that students complete every year that they are enrolled in postsecondary education if they want to receive a portion of the $80 billion dollars that the Federal Student Aid program disburses each year through grants, loans, and work study. Additionally, most colleges and universities use the results of the FAFSA to determine the amount of financial aid that they award to their students. The application can be completed on paper or online. Visit www.FAFSA.ed.gov for more information.

The PIN serves as an electronic signature and provides access to your personal information. On the website, students and parents can apply for a PIN, change a PIN,  update personal information, and more. Visit www.PIN.ed.gov for more information.
