FAFSA, FAFSA, FAFSA!
It’s February, which is Financial Aid Awareness Month! In our Fall 2019 issue of Turning Points Magazine, ASU doctoral student and financial aid outreach specialist Delphina Thomas (Diné) graced our pages with her invaluable stories on financial literacy titled “FAFSA: Friendly Advice From Student Aficionado” and “Th!nk Smart With Your Refund.” Tune in as Taylor Notah (Diné) and Nicholet Deschine-Parkhurst (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe/Diné) get into the nitty gritty of FAFSA where Delphina breaks down the application process, defines what “special circumstances” are, and why she encourages students to check the work study box when applying. We even discuss resisting the urge to splurge on non-academic items when aid comes in (disclaimer: we’ve been guilty of this).
