    Financial Aid Night


    Kent State will be presenting a virtual Financial Aid presentation. This presentation is for any student or family wanting to gain knowledge about the process of applying for financial aid for college purposes. All grade levels are welcome to watch, but this could be most beneficial for current seniors as information can change from year to year. Although the presentation is given by Kent State University, the information is not specific to the college. This is a general information presentation, and can be useful regardless of which college or university the student plans to attend. The presentation will be held on September 23rd at 6pm. 

    For login information, or additional presentation days provided by Kent State, please see below.

    FAFSA Workshop

    Jackson High School will be hosting a Financial Aid Workshop night for families wishing to complete the financial aid application with a representative from local colleges around the area. Families can attend this workshop, and it is done on a first-come, first-served basis. Local colleges will be available to help and walk families through the process of filing for financial aid, but it is not college specific. Any college representative can help, regardless if the student plans to attend that college or not. 

    The Financial Aid Workshop will be held on October 5th from 5-7pm in the High School Commons. 

    Families wishing to participate must bring the following items with them:

    - Laptop 

    - 2020 Tax return/federal 1040's

    - 2020 W-2's

    - Student and Parent social security numbers available

    - Investment statements (if applicable) 

    - Child support received/paid statements (if applicable)

    * To help make this process easier, it is ideal for parents and students to create a FAFSA username and password before the workshop. That can be done here


    If you cannot attend this workshop in person, Kent State will also be providing help virtually at the same time and day! For virtual help with the FAFSA application, please click here on October 5th between 5-7pm.
