Seniors and Parents
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) opened up on October 1, 2020. In a normal year, we would do a FAFSA presentation and assistance night for senior students and parents. However, this year we are providing you with information, links, and presentations for you to be able to understand and file. It is recommended that all seniors complete the FAFSA application even if you feel you may not qualify for funds because college/universities want to know your EFC (see explanation below) index in order to be able to offer you their scholarships.
Our normal event is hosted by Caleb Willis, Associate Director of Financial Aid - Navarro College. You may contact him through the contact information below with any questions even if your student is not attending Navarro.
Also, I am providing a LINK to the College Board website and a LINK to their presentation for FAFSA.
If you have any questions, please contact Becky Oliver, College Liaison at: Becky_oliver@misd.gs
****Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is an index number that college financial aid staff use to determine how much financial aid you would receive if you were to attend their school. The information you report on your FAFSA, including specific tax information and family income, is used to calculate your EFC.***
If you need GPA/Rank, please request a "pdf of unofficial transcript"
This is for seniors only - WE ARE NOT RELEASING JUNIOR INFORMATION AT THIS TIME!

You are allowed 2 excused official College visit days during Junior year as well as Senior year. If you are taking an official college visit, you must email your attendance person at least 3 days prior.

Community Service Hours Available
All Midlothian High School students must complete at least 10 hours of community service over their high school career. This community service is a graduation requirement for Midlothian Independent School District. The program is administered through social studies and details are explained in the community service program flyer and service form.
Requesting a Transcript - SENIORS ONLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
All transcript requests have to be made through NAVIANCE on your student school device.
Students have access to a web-based college and career readiness tool called Naviance. This platform allows students to explore interests, research post-secondary options, and set personalized goals. Throughout the year, students will be assigned tasks in Naviance that can be completed at school or at home on their own time. Tasks will consist of surveys, college searching, career interest exploration, resume building and goal-setting. These tasks will show on the student's dashboard once they are logged in. We encourage parents to partner with their student and engage in conversations related to specific interests and post-secondary plans.
