SAT and ACT Dates and Fees for 2017-2018
This law, passed on March 30, 2015, provides that Georgia students are no longer required to earn a passing score on any graduation tests to earn a high school diploma. Former students that did not earn a high school diploma solely for not achieving a passing score on any of the graduation tests, but met all other state requirements for their expected year of graduation may submit a petition to Fulton County Schools online to determine if they are eligible to receive their high school diploma.
To submit a petition please access the electronic application at: https://www3.fultonschools.org/hb91/home/index2.
Please note that you will need to complete the entire application, and will need to attach a government issued photo identification in order for the petition to be processed.
If you have additional questions please contact Fulton County Schools at firstname.lastname@example.org.
File the FAFSA even if you don't think you'll qualify for aid!
According to several studies, nearly half of all students who didn't file for financial assistance assumed they were ineligible for aid because they made too much money. It's important to understand, however, that financial aid isn't based on income alone. The FAFSA also takes into account the family's other expenses and assets, whether the family has other kids in college, and the rising cost of tuition and room and board.
Consider, as well, that if these students qualified for the Pell Grant, they likely would have qualified for other types of financial aid, too–including grants and low-interest subsidized Federal Stafford Loans.
If you don't file the FAFSA, you'll never know if you would have been eligible for financial aid. To file go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. For more help with filing your FAFSA check out these sites:
