The end of the school year is not far away and many graduates will be seeking higher education.

Those who plan on using financial aid have until April 15th to submit their priority Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Albany State University officials say submitting the FAFSA by this date gives the school enough time to process the information and award aid to students before the fall semester.

Those who have not applied to a college or university have until June 1st to submit their application to Albany State University. The application deadline for Albany Tech's summer C-Term is June 6th.
