FAFSA shows a June 30 deadline, which is the final date of the award year for receipt of applications. All applications received after March 1 will be considered for financial aid awards on a funds available basis.

New app: SelfControl

So, you’re hard at work doing your homework and someone tweets at you. You obviously have to check it. An hour goes by and you have been on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, but now you don’t even know what you have for homework. Not to worry, a new app called SelfControl will solve your problems. This app allows you to block certain websites/apps for a set amount of time. Once you put these blocks in place, there is no way for you to access them until the time you’ve specified previously runs out. Even if you’re going crazy and delete the application, you still won’t be able to access them before the time you specified. Can you say A+?
