ECHS Counselors/Scholarships

ECHS COUNSELORS

Students and their parents are encouraged to talk with a school counselor to learn more about course offerings and graduation requirements.  To plan for the future, each student should work closely with their counselor in order to enroll in the high school courses that best prepare him/her for attendance at a college, university, or trade school, or for pursuit of some other type of advanced education.  The counselor can also provide information about entrance exams and application deadlines, as well as information about automatic admission to state colleges and universities, financial aid and scholarships. 

ECHS school counselors are also available to assist students with a wide range of personal concerns, including such areas as social, family, or emotional issues.  ECHS counselors may also make available information about community resources to address concerns.

FAFSA News

On Sept. 14, 2015, President Obama announced significant changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process that will impact millions of students.  Starting with the 2017-2018 application cycle, the following changes will be put in place:

Students will be able to submit a FAFSA earlierStudents will be able to file a 2017-18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year. (There is NO CHANGE to the 2016-17 schedule. The FAFSA became available January 1 as in previous years.) 

Students will use earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017-18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017-18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.
