Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship

College Deadlines- Apply early!  The colleges will run out of scholarship money.  

FSA IDThis is the link to the Federal Student Aid ID website.  Both the student and the parent will need a FSA ID.  

FAFSA- This is the link to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  All seniors will need to complete their FAFSA after they and their parents have completed their  taxes.

* Here is the recorded video from our Virtual FAFSA Virtual Night Presentation on 10/18/2021:

*Remember, you must have a FAFSA completed to be awarded the Academic Challenge Scholarship and you will need to complete the FAFSA every year that you are in college.

A frequently asked question about FAFSA:

Which FAFSA should I complete? If you are planning on taking college classes this summer, complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA. If you will enter college in Fall 2022, then complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA. 

If you have any other questions, feel free to set up a time to meet with your counselor. Everyone should complete a FAFSA, even if they aren't sure of their future plan and if college will be a part of that. 


College Visit Days:  Pick up and return College visit request forms with Mrs. Petty in the main GHS office.

College Transcripts:
Seniors make sure you transfer your UCA, UALR, Tech, AStATE, and UACCM transcripts to your new college.  The GHS Counseling Office cannot do this for you.  

You need to review your transcript online to make sure everything looks correct.  If you have any issues, please bring a copy of your college transcript to Mrs. Hebel.

Teacher & Counselor Recommendations

  • Here are some guidelines that should help you secure better recommendations
  • Start early. Your teachers and counselors are swamped, so give them plenty of time.
  • Give your teachers and counselors all the necessary materials, including your application deadlines and stamped, addressed envelopes or a link to online recommendations.
  • Waive your confidentiality rights.
  • Pick your recommenders wisely. Don't pick a teacher just because you got an A in his or her class. It's important that the teacher or counselor knows you well.
  • Promptly send a thank-you note to each person who gives you a recommendation.
