FAFSA Frenzy offers free help to prospective and current students and parents in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is the first step in applying for federal, state and institutional financial assistance programs.

Financial aid professionals will be on hand to assist attendees in completing the 2020-2021 FAFSA on site and provide pertinent information about federal and state funding and scholarships. Suggested items students and parents should bring are 2018 tax forms, 2018 W-2s, Social Security Number, FSA ID username and password (create this at fsaid.ed.gov), and records of untaxed income and assets.

Drawings will be held for scholarships from the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development for students attending the Missouri events. Winners will receive their scholarships upon receipt of enrollment verification for the 2020 fall term in a Missouri postsecondary program.

FAFSA Frenzy is part of national efforts to promote FAFSA completion and has been offered in Missouri since 2004 through partnerships between the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development, Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel, Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority, and National College Access Network.
