iGrad Class of 2023 Financial Aid Advising Day

The last few school years have looked different than most in many ways, but one thing that remains the same is the importance of applying for financial aid to help pay for education after high school. In 2020, a new Washington State Law was passed requiring school districts to provide an opportunity for students and families to learn about financial aid. Kent School District high schools will host Financial Aid Advising Day during advisory or homeroom in October for students to learn about completing the financial aid application process. During this virtual event students will learn about the Washington College Grant, the new Financial Aid Calculator, the College Board CSS Profile, completing financial aid applications, community-based resources available, and more!
