In an effort to help students overcome barriers to accessing and succeeding in higher education, St. Louis Community College has teamed up with the Missouri Department of Higher Education to host four Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Frenzy events.
The events will be conducted on the following dates:
Wednesday, Oct. 11
Business Administration (BA) Room 105
Site Coordinator: Nicole Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Saturday, Oct. 14
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Administration Building, 2nd Floor
Site Coordinator: Mareo Hendrickson (email@example.com)
Sunday, Oct. 15
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Café East Meeting Room
Site Coordinator: Kristin Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thursday, Oct. 26
Site Coordinator: Shantelle Harris (email@example.com)
William J. Harrison Education Center
Wednesday, Nov. 8
Site Coordinator: Susan Imbeah (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Students are encouraged to RSVP to attend.
During these events, students will receive free professional assistance completing the FAFSA — the primary form used by federal, state and institutional financial assistance programs to determine an individual’s eligibility for grants, loans, work-study and scholarships. Any student, regardless of where he or she intends to pursue his or her education, is invited to attend.
Those who plan to attend should bring the following to a FAFSA Frenzy event:
- Student and parent FSA ID information.
- Parent(s)’ 2016 taxes and Parent(s)’ 2016 W2s
- Student’s 2016 taxes and Student’s 2016 W2s
- Parent(s)’ Social Security Card(s)
- Student’s Social Security Card
- List of schools to which the student has applied, been accepted, or is interested in attending.
Each year, FAFSA events help thousands of Missouri students complete the application. In addition to STLCC’s events, high schools, postsecondary institutions and community organizations across the state will serve as FAFSA Frenzy sites through Jan. 31, 2018.
For the second consecutive year, students can complete the FAFSA form as early as Oct. 1, rather than waiting until January. This change enables students who plan to attend college from July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019, to complete and submit their FAFSA forms using income and tax information from 2016.
