FAFSA & Other Financial Aid
Do NOT have a social security number? Nevada provides eligible undocumented residents, including DACA recipients, with access to in-state tuition, state financial aid, professional and occupational licenses, and driver's licenses and state identification.
Here are links to all of the colleges and their contacts. https://nshe.nevada.edu/leadership-policy/administration/academic-student-affairs/students/dacaundocumentedstudents/institution-daca-resources/
The FAFSA application opens on October 1st.
This year all WCSD High Schools have coordinated FAFSA nights. If you can't attend one at the high school your child attends, you can attend a different night. See the dates and times here.
