FAFSA Fest 2017 will help students who plan to attend college in the 2017-2018 school year complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), answer financial aid questions and provide one-on-one help to understand college costs. Refreshments will be provided. Volunteers include financial aid counselors from local colleges. The event is for high school seniors and their families and for students in college receiving aid who need to file a FAFSA form annually.

Financial aid is offered on a first-come, first-served basis – so it is critical to submit the FAFSA as early as possible. Applications for colleges and universities have different due dates. Many four-year-college deadlines fall in January and February, and community colleges have various application deadlines throughout the year. 

Students who plan to attend any of the FAFSA Fest events are asked to bring 2015 or 2016 tax forms. Parents or guardians should attend as well to ensure that the application process can be completed. All students are welcome and assistance for special circumstances will be available.
