CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia students are being urged to file paperwork to be considered for state-level grants to help pay for college and career and technical programs.

Officials say students must file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid by Tuesday in order to be considered for the state-level financial aid.

Completing the application allows students to be considered for many types of state and federal financial aid.

State financial aid includes the West Virginia Higher Education Grant program, which offers eligible students up to $2,500 per year to help pay for college expenses.

There's also a West Virginia Higher Education Adult Part-Time Student grant program.

Officials say application completion rates are down slightly from last year, possibly due to recent harsh winter weather.
