Indiana College Core
Do you want to get a head start on college? The Indiana College Core allows high
school students to earn 30 general education credits that can be transferred as a
block to any public college or university in Indiana, as well as some private
institutions. In other words, students who earn the College Core in high school may
already be finished with their first year of college at a fraction of the cost. To learn
more about the Indiana College Core and put together your plan, use My College
Core (mycollegecore.org) and work closely with your school counselor.
What is FAFSA?
The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the most important
document for determining if you’re eligible for financial aid — money to help you pay
for education and training beyond high school. The easiest way to file the FAFSA is
online at FAFSA.gov.
After you file your FAFSA, your college will be able to tell you which scholarships
and grants you could receive as well as how much money you can borrow in federal
loans. To find out more about the FAFSA, including what kinds of state financial aid
is available, check out Learn More Indiana’s FAFSA guide for Hoosiers.
