TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Tippecanoe students and families preparing for college next year are receiving help filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid at area high schools.

Tuesday kicked off FAFSA Days at McCutcheon High School. The event gives Tippecanoe County students the opportunity to file their FAFSA. In addition, attendees have the opportunity to receive help by meeting with a member of the National Center of College Costs.

McCutcheon High School counselor Stephanie Rogers said most high schools are now pushing all students to fill out a FAFSA.

“It’s very important for students to apply for FAFSA, mainly because it can get them loans that they might need for paying for school,” Rogers said. “If they get the application completed by the March 10 deadline, which is the state deadline, they can be eligible for state grants as well.”

McCutcheon High School is the first of three Tippecanoe County schools to host the event. Harrison High School and Lafayette Jeff High School will also have FAFSA days.
