New 55,000 Degrees Website will help with FAFSA
15,000 Degrees’ partner, 55,000 Degrees, has launched a new website to assist students and parents with the FAFSA.
Fafsalouisville.org offers resources about how to file FAFSA, as well as more general guides on college preparation. Many of the resources can be found in either English or Spanish and the site also provides upcoming dates, times, and locations for FAFSA-related events around Louisville.
A nice feature of the website is the event finder. Instead of searching all over to find FAFSA events in the Metro area, you can simply use fafsalouisville.org’s tool to search by zip code and find the events nearest to you, as well as the date and time of the event.
55K’s new website also offers a section for school counselors. Counselors can find resources on the site to help students to complete the FAFSA and answer any questions students and parents may have regarding the application.
