Established in 2008 as KnowHow2GO, the BWCAN is St. Clair County's Local College Access Network. Comprised of community leaders, including the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, we are committed to building a college-going culture and dramatically increasing college readiness, participation, and completion rates within our community. Collectively, we have helped over 30,000 local students find their path to post-secondary education and increased the number of students attending college after high school.


Paying for college, FAFSA and FSA ID

Seniors should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to receive help paying for college. It is free to file and available online at fafsa.ed.gov. Students will need a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) to file, which they can create now at fsaid.ed.gov.
