KHS to host Financial Student Aid Workshop Series

The Keokuk High School will host a Financial Student Aid Workshop Series that will start with Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID workshops throughout November and December.

The series is meant to help parents and students every step of the way for students that plan to utilize financial aid to attend college or a career/technical school. 

Specifically, the FSA ID workshops will help participants sign up for an ID needed to fill out a FAFSA form required to receive federal financial aid. The workshops will be hosted by Tina Clark, the College and Career Transition Coach at KHS, and Clark said that the workshops are especially needed this year as a new federal act has been implemented and the FAFSA process has changed for 2024-25

FSA ID Workshops at KHS will be held as an open house: 

  • Wednesday, Nov. 8 from 1-4 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov.13 from 4-8 p.m.
  • Friday, Nov.17 from 2-6 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov.20 from 2-6 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov. 27 from 2-6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 29 from 1-4 p.m.
  • NOTE: For those that cannot attend in person, there is also a video tutorial on how to sign up for an FSA ID from StudentAid.gov.

Clark also suggests that parents and students fill out an Iowa Financial Aid Application as well to apply for grants, scholarships and potentially qualify for loans at iowacollegeaid.gov.

In December, additional FSA ID workshops will be held at KHS and in January, FAFSA Workshops will occur, check the Keokuk Community School District website, keokukschools.org or social media for dates. On Feb. 1, the deadlines will start for applications/FAFSA form submissions for some higher education institutions (colleges/universities).

For additional information or questions, KHS parents and students are also able to schedule individual meetings with Clark by calling (319) 313-1926 or emailing tina.clark@keokukschools.org.
