A+ Checklist for Seniors

 

Fall Semester of Your Senior Year

  • Enroll in the A+ program no later than September 1st of your senior year. 
    • To enroll in the program, submit the signed A+ Agreement Form to the FHN A+ Coordinator, located in the Guidance Office.
  • Complete the 50-hour tutoring/mentoring requirement by January 1st of your senior year.
  • Apply to the post-secondary institution (college) of your choice, taking note of any deadlines set by that school.  
    • The A+ program will pay 100% of your tuition if you are a degree-seeking, full-time student at any Missouri public community college or career/technical school. 
    • Visit the MDHE website at http://dhe.mo.gov/ppc/grants/aplusscholarship.php for specific details about the terms of the A+ scholarship.

Spring Semester of Your Senior Year

  • Parents/guardians should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by April 1st of the student's senior year if applying for A+ funds the following Fall semester.
    • The FAFSA is a federal financial aid form required of all college students receiving financial aid or scholarships. 
    • In order to be eligible for the A+ scholarship, the FAFSA must be filed each academic year.   
    • Parents/guardians may wish to consider filing taxes as soon as possible, as the FAFSA will require this information.
    • Financial information provided on the FAFSA does NOT have any bearing on a student's A+ eligibility.  Rather, the FAFSA is required to ensure that any federal funds that do not require repayment (for which the student may be eligible) are applied prior to the state's A+ funds. 
    • The FAFSA may be filed online at http://www.fafsa.gov
  • Contact the post-secondary institution (college) to ensure your A+ file is complete by the required deadline. 
    • Students attending St. Charles Community College must have a complete A+ file by July 1st in order to avoid having to prepay tuition and fees for the following Fall semester.
  • Visit the FHN Guidance Office to request a final transcript to be sent to the college you will be attending.
    • Final transcripts are NOT automatically sent without YOU submitting a final transcript request form. 
  • Upon graduation, the FHN A+ Coordinator will verify that you have successfully met all the program's eligibility requirements.
  • If eligible, your final official transcript will be stamped with the official Missouri A+ seal and forwarded to the college you indicated on the final transcript request form.
    • The A+ stamped official transcript serves as verification of your A+ eligibility.

If you have additional questions or concerns about the FHN A+ Schools Program, please contact the A+ Coordinator, Ann Herman, at (636) 851-5924 or ann.herman@fhsdschools.org.
