What is the CIC?
This is the image for the news article titled What is the CIC?

Please visit the CIC (Career Information Center) located next to the Guidance Office.  The CIC is available to the entire Franklin community.  Scholarship, financial aid and post-secondary information is located in the CIC. 

During the fall, the CIC is host to college visits.  College representatives from all over the state of Michigan come to Franklin to present valuable information from their institution.  College bound Juniors and Seniors can sign up for these visits in the Guidance Office.

The CIC also provides information on all branches of the military.  Free brochures are available to all students.  Students interested in enlisting in the military will want to take advantage of signing up for the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery).  The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students.  The ASVAB is typically offered in December of each school year.  Please contact your Guidance Counselor for further information.

Need money for college?

Students applying to any community college or university will want to take advantage of the FAFSA.  The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student  Aid) is a form that can be prepared annually by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid (including the Pell GrantFederal student loans and Federal Work-Study).[1]

Despite its name, the application is not for a single federal program, being rather the gateway of consideration for:

  1. the nine federal student-aid programs
  2. the 605 state aid programs
  3. most of the institutional aid available

The U.S. Department of Education accepts applications beginning January 1 of each year for the upcoming academic year. Each application period is 18 months; most federal, state, and institutional aid is provided on a first come, first served basis. Students are advised to submit a FAFSA as early as possible for consideration for maximum financial assistance.
