Free Assistance Completing the FAFSA

FAFSA FrenzyThe Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the primary form used by all colleges and universities to determine your eligibility for grants, loans, work-study and scholarships. More importantly, this application is mandatory for all those planning to attend college.

The Missouri Department of Higher Education has an assistance program called FAFSA Frenzy to help high school students and their families successfully complete this online application process. They will be hosting several sessions of this free event at mid-Missouri high schools. If you are planning to attend college in the fall, mark your calendars now for one of these five sessions.
