Students can go to bit.ly/ohscourse23 in order to choose their course registration form for their grade.

FAFSA Priority Deadline Permanently Extended!
The Michigan Department of Treasury and MI Student Aid announced last week that the Michigan FAFSA priority deadline has been extended to May 1, starting with the class of 2023. This is a permanent change, which gives Michigan students and their families more time to file the FAFSA and access valuable financial aid opportunities.
This deadline applies only to the Michigan Competitive Scholarship and the Michigan Tuition Grant. Students who may be eligible should file the FAFSA before May 1, as MI Student Aid will not award these scholarships to anyone who files after that date. Affordability remains one of the largest barriers to college access and success, and MCAN applauds this deadline change, which gives more students a chance to take advantage of these scholarship programs
Michigan Achievement Scholarship
The priority deadline does not apply to the new Michigan Achievement Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to eligible students until funds are exhausted, so it is in students' best interest to file the FAFSA as soon as possible. HERE is a digital toolkit available with social media assets, printable flyers, and other materials to help share this scholarship information with your school or community.
Celebrating College Month
Michigan College Month is held each October and Owosso High School staff are #allin4owosso as they mentor all grades levels to #ReachHigherOHS, learn about post-secondary planning for college, skilled trade schools, job exploration, and military opportunities.
The counselors, teachers and support staff all participated including College Spirit Week: Note the MSU photobomb in the CMU group photo! Alumni competition aside, the #Classof2023 seniors are especially off to a great start in their career and college exploration, and submitting applications.

Registering for Selective Service:
It's Still the Law! While there is no draft, all men 18-25 living in the U.S. must register with SSS.gov because it's still the law, it's your civic duty and a rite of passage. Plus, they will stay eligible for a lifetime of benefits.
