FAQs on FAFSA:
1) What is the "FAFSA" and how is it used?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form that determines eligibility for state and federal financial aid to cover higher education expenses.
2) Where does the student data in the Finish the FAFSA database report come from?
The NC Department of Public Instruction provides a list of the seniors for each participating high school. Each senior’s name, date of birth, home address, and school code are matched with his or her FAFSA status from the U.S. Department of Education’s office of Federal Student Aid. Information reflected in the database includes: not submitted, submitted, completed, signed by student and parent, and whether chosen for verification.
3) What do schools do with this information?
School counselors who work with seniors can monitor their students who have or have not completed the FAFSA. They can advise seniors about correcting FAFSA errors or how to complete verification.
4) Is there a risk to student privacy?
No income information is included in the Finish the FAFSA database. No Social Security numbers are included either. Access to the database is guided by regulations to safeguard student data and only authorized users at each school can access that school’s student data. Parents can opt-out so that student information does not appear in the Finish the FAFSA database.
5) Can I share student data that I find in the Finish the FAFSA report?
Student-level data is protected by federal law and must not be shared with anyone other than the student or parent, and other authorized personnel at the school.
• The data should never be shared with other students.
• Sharing student data from one school with authorized personnel at another school is prohibited because authorization is school-specific.
• Sharing student data within the school with unauthorized personnel at the same school is prohibited.
• Authorized personnel have been designated by the school district administration.
• Access has been granted only to those school staff, and/or to other persons from federally designated entities, such as GEAR UP, who work directly with seniors on FAFSA completion and college access.
Each participating school district signs a Data Use Agreement requiring the protection of student data and limitation of use of the data for intended purposes only.
6) Where is Finish the FAFSA?
Education professionals who are Authorized Users access Finish the FAFSA in the Professional Tools on CFNC.org.
7) Where do I get more information?
The North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA) is a state agency that helps North Carolinians pay for education. Contact Outreach@ncseaa.edu with questions or to request a Data Use Agreement for your school.
FAFSA help can be found at CFNC: 888/737-9321.
You will need to get a FSA ID so you can electronically sign your FAFSA. Visithttps://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm

Using Your Chromebook
Steps to Complete
- Log into the Chromebook

- On the next page (Guilford County Schools Soar to Greatness) enter your GCS username and password. Format is studentIDemail@example.com. Password is your birthday, format mmddyyyy
- If you see a page with a blue ACCEPT button on the bottom, click ACCEPT
OR, from the black screen with your name that says “sign in required”
- Click the orange sign in required button
- Follow the steps above.
Step 2: Logging into Microsoft Office

I wanted to add a couple of tips that may help get the laptops working better:
- Sound: if the sound is not working properly try holding down the “up volume” button on the keyboard to 100, then shutting down the computer while still holding the volume button. Then restart the computer. This usually fixes sound issues.
- Not opening work: try going to www.office.com and logging in with their student email address and password. Email address would be studentIDfirstname.lastname@example.org and password would be their birthdate mmddyyyy
- Other issues: restart the computer AFTER 5 pm so updates can install.
Even if you do end up switching out the computers, these tips should work on any of our current GCS laptops.

Please keep in mind that the purpose of CCP is for eligible high school students to earn college credits towards a college degree, diploma, or certificate. Dual credit for high school graduation requirements is a bonus, but should not be what drives course selection. Courses in the CCP transfer pathways should be selected based on the published bachelor degree plan for the major at the university the student intends to transfer to after high school. Students cannot exceed 61 credit hours for the college transfer pathways.
Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Say Yes Guilford is excited to host our Spring SAT/ACT Prep on Feb. 17th 6-7:30 p.m. Students may register at sayyesguilford.org/events.
For SAT registration, go to https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register
FYI: our school’s CEEB/College Board code is 342 570. You need this when signing up for the SAT.
For now, go to CollegeBoard, check it out, create your account, and then when you’re ready to select a test date, email me. I can send you a code that will waive the registration fee, and the code is good for two test administrations!
Listen! When you create your account with CollegeBoard, be sure to write your username and password in multiple, safe locations! Maybe photograph it with your phone. If you are to lose your username or password, it’s almost impossible to retrieve it from CollegeBoard. It’s a pain in the neck, for sure!
Meanwhile, Khan Academy is a free test practice site, and it's quite fabulous. Their section on the SAT is sensational. As students work through practice questions, Khan can actually discern where the student's weak areas are and identify them - which is exactly what you want. Focusing on the weak areas will allow for the best point gain. Check it out! https://www.khanacademy.org/sat
Finally, I want to encourage you to take the best courses you can, make As and Bs, and keep moving forward.
College can be a great experience for you, one of the best of your life. Just be sure to pick a major that has great employment opportunities, is something you ‘d like to do, and will generate an income that will allow you to live well. Don’t let anyone tell you money can’t buy happiness! Money doesn’t buy fulfillment, but it sets the stage to have a lot less stress in your life.
Let me know of anything you need – and keep a watch on my website for news, announcements and other messages of interest!

ETSU is waiving the application fee for North Carolina students! As you may have already seen, their out-of-state tuition for NC students has been adjusted down to $10,500 per year (border counties still receive the in-state rate). Students can apply for free by going to etsu.edu/apply and using the application code ncbucs21. ETSU is also test-optional, which means we will rely solely on their high school transcripts to deliver a decision. You can still submit their test scores for scholarship purposes. Here is a video (1 minute and 45 seconds) about ETSU: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJqZcILm2GM
