Dishman Hills High School is supported by Summit's College Readiness. They continuously update college.summitps.org with college application and financial aid information. Check it out!
Though we will go over all of this information with your students and go on multiple college trips throughout the year, it is important that all members of the family understand that all courses, grades, and curricular activities factor into admission decisions later down the line.
For more information about college readiness at Dishman Hills, check out college.summitps.org. Here you can find consolidated resources from Summit’s College Readiness Director about the path your students will take to be prepared. This site also has additional useful college information.
The FAFSA demonstration site is available so you can increase your own understanding of fafsa.gov and show it to students before they apply. At the FAFSA demo site, you can complete a sample FAFSA form, make corrections, or check the status of the form. However, when you choose "submit," the information is not actually submitted. The site is purely a learning tool.
The demo site is updated in September each year to show the upcoming year's form.
Students and parents can get FSA IDs either before or while filling out the form at fafsa.gov. We encourage students and parents to get their FSA IDs before filling out the FAFSA form. The FSA ID can be used to access the myStudentAid mobile app and to electronically sign the online FAFSA form.

Please don't ask students to share their FSA IDs with you for safekeeping, even if you are helping them to apply for aid. The FSA ID must not be shared with anyone. If a student forgets his or her FSA ID, he or she can go to StudentAid.gov/login (or to any Federal Student Aid website that requires log-in) and follow the links that give the option of retrieving the username or password via the student's verified email address or mobile phone number, or by successfully answering his or her challenge questions.
