College planning for rising seniors
- Summer offers opportunities for students to fine-tune (or start) their college search. The College Admissions Toolkit and other resources from our College Pathways events can help guide the way, wherever students are in the process.
The FSA ID
- Students and parents now need to use a new FSA ID to access their FAFSA and financial aid records at government websites. Find step-by-step details on this new process at StudentAid.gov/fsaid, and see tips from VSAC.
- If students haven't yet filled out a Vermont grant application, they can still apply for the 2015-2016 school year.
Dual enrollment & early college
- Students can apply for dual enrollment vouchers (including a possible stipend for expenses) at vtdualenrollment.org. Remind students in early college programs that if they are eligible for a Vermont grant, they can also receive a $150 stipend for books, fees, or travel.
Paying for College dates: VSAC is scheduling our Paying for College presentations for next fall. Please contact your VSAC Outreach counselor to schedule your date.

Focus on PLP
We had record attendance at our 10th annual Transition & Career Conference, with more than 290 counselors and professionals participating in the event sponsored by VSAC, the Vermont Agency of Education, and VocRehab Vermont. The keynote address by David Ruff, facilitator of the VT personalized learning plan (PLP) work group, focused on PLP implementation. View the powerpoint of his address, and WCAX's coverage.
