SFCC FAFSA Frenzy
State Fair Community College will again host one of Missouri’s annual “FAFSA Frenzy” events Feb. 17 to help college-bound students apply for financial aid.
The free workshop will be held from 2-4 p.m. in Fielding Technical Center Room 226 on the Sedalia campus. An inclement weather back-up date has been set for Feb. 24.
FAFSA Frenzy, a program of College Goal Sunday (CGS), offers free help to prospective and current students and parents in filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the first step in applying for federal financial aid and many state programs.
Financial aid professionals will be on hand to assist families with the FAFSA process. Families will be able to complete the 2013-2014 FAFSA on site and obtain pertinent information. Attendees should bring their 2012 federal income tax forms.
Drawings will be held for scholarships for students attending the Missouri events. Winners will receive their scholarships upon receipt of enrollment verification for the 2013 fall term in a Missouri postsecondary program. SFCC is one of 54 sites hosting FAFSA Frenzy events Feb. 17. This is the 10th year Missouri has participated in CGS. In the past nine years, CGS/FAFSA Frenzy has helped more than 9,500 Missouri students complete the FAFSA.
FAFSA Frenzy is offered in Missouri through partnerships between the Missouri Department of Higher Education with the Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel, the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority the Lumina Foundation for Education, and USA Funds.
