Have you read about registered apprenticeship programs and thought it could be the right education/career pathway for you, but aren’t sure if you have enough skills to be successful in it?

Happy Halloween! Have you filed your FAFSA yet? Not to scare you, but most forms of financial aid are based on a first filed first served system – so, the earlier you file the FAFSA the better your chances are of receiving aid that you qualify for. If you haven’t filed, yet, we are here to help – If you’re not convinced you need to file a FAFSA, well… perhaps this article will change your mind.
For Alaska students the FAFSA is your application for the Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS) and the Alaska Education Grant (AEG) as well as other scholarships and grants. High school students can earn the APS by meeting the curriculum requirements on this check list (download here) as well as by test score. To apply for the APS with the FAFSA you must list at least one Alaska school as a place you are interested in attending.
