Information for all Humboldt Fastpitch and Mist Players on College Applications and Financial Aid

Please note valuable information on applying for colleges and financial aid:

For college bound high school students, fall of senior year is very busy.  This fall this is especially true because the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) filing date opens on 
October 1st, instead of January 1st as has been the case for many years.  The good news is that with support from the Decade of Difference, Northcoast Cal-SOAP, and the Arcata and McKinleyville Career & College Centers, students and parents can get the help and information that you need to navigate the college application and financial aid process.  The Northern Humboldt Union High School District Career Frontiers program will start this school year with several events tailored to support students who plan to apply to go to college next fall. 

On September 15th, before McKinleyville High School Back to School Night, we will offer a college information session for students and parents at 5:30 p.m. in the MHS library. September 19th offers another college information session for students and parents at St. Bernard's Academy at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. September 22nd is the 32nd annual Northcoast Cal-SOAP College Expo, starting at 5:30 p.m. at Eureka High School. On September 26th at 6:30 p.m. in the Arcata High School library, the Career & College Center will share college application tips and will answer questions about financial aid. October 5thfrom 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. at MHS, and October 13th from 2:00 - 7:00 p.m. at AHS, offers Cash For College sessions, which will help you with the specifics of filing your FAFASA.  For more information about any of these events, call the Northern Humboldt Union High School District or email Jim Ritter at
