Survey for Students
The WFAA Student Budgets Committee and the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) have developed a student survey. http://bit.ly/1amxXny. The survey is an important part of developing accurate student budgets for the benefit of financial aid offices in the state. All students are asked to participate so a wide range of school locations and student demographics can be reached. The more surveys collected, the more accurate student budgets will be. The survey deadline is May 15, 2015.
