You probably have a lot of questions especially if this is your first child to attend college. The purpose of this site is answer your questions and to provide you with contact information of financial aid staff who will visit with you regarding your unique situation.
To provide you with the most complete service possible, we would encourage you to talk to your child about the FERPA consent form. This form allows your child to give us consent to release specific information to you. FERPA Information LinkAll About Money
Chances are this isn't your first rodeo on helping a student get to college and/or helping him/her with paying for college options.
One thing we encourage students to do is get involved. From events/activities/organizations within the high school and/or in your community, involvement can assist a student with financial needs. From scholarships given by community/civic groups to college scholarships, a student's involvement and care for others can be a factor on scholarships.
Apply for Barton scholarships before the March 15 deadline. Barton automatically awards students based on academic achievements, as well as, a student's involvement within activity and performance groups.
Federal Financial Aid:
Encourage your student to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). By filling this out your student may be eligible for federal pell grants, student loans, and/or parent loans.
Barton's payment plan is offered by NelNet. The plan allows you to make monthly payments by credit card or from your checking or savings account. The plan requires a $30 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee and completion of the online application. Information requires the student's Barton ID number, name and address of the person responsible for making payments, and the bank information or credit card information. To access the NelNet payment plan, please log into your PAWS account.
If you have additional questions about the payment plan or are unable to enroll in the payment plan, please contact the Business office at 620-792-9319 for additional information or assistance.
