Campus Visits

Many universities have special days set aside for high school students to come visit their campus with family and experience a small part of college life.

Seniors are allowed 2 college days (excused absences).  See Mr. Bounds for a form BEFORE you take a college day.


Lunch Visits

Every month college recruiters/military recruiters come to our school for lunch visits.  This means they will set up a table outside the cafeteria for students to ask questions and receive free information for their future.

What is FAFSA?


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application you will use to apply for federal student aid programs offered by the U.S. Department of Education (ED). Filling out the FAFSA is free and gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to help pay for college.

Many states and colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state aid and school aid.


Application Begins: October 1, 2017


Federal Student Aid includes: 

  • Grants
  • Work-study funds
  • Student loans

When do I submit my FAFSA?

  • NOW!!!
  • If you plan to attend college from July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018, you can submit the FAFSA NOW.
  • The deadline for FAFSA applications is June 30, 2018.
  • Apply as soon as possible - Some states have limited financial aid funds - You could miss out on aid if you wait until the last minute to apply!

How to Apply:
Almost all students and families complete the FAFSA online at fafsa.gov
  • fafsa.gov has built-in help to guide you through the application process
  • fafsa.gov uses "skip logic" that allows you to skip questions that don't apply to you
  • the schools you list on your FAFSA will receive your processed information faster

In addition to the online form, you have two other options for completing the FAFSA:
  • You can download  and complete a PDF FAFSA (go to fafsa.gov and scroll to FAFSA Filing Options).
  • You can order and complete a paper version of the PDF FAFSA (you may request up to three copies of the PDF FAFSA by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).

FAFSA DAYS
OGHS hosts three "FAFSA Days." On FAFSA days, students are allowed to come into the Career Center to complete and submit their FAFSA. 
OGHS 2017 FAFSA Days:
  • TBA
We strongly encourage you to complete your FAFSA as soon as possible. Some states have limited financial aid funds. Funds will be distributed on a "first-come, first-served" basis. SO, APPLY NOW! DON'T WAIT!
