FAFSA Frenzy

Our admissions counselors are here to help! Stop by for free assistance with your Federal Application for Free Student Aid (FAFSA) between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. on one of our FAFSA Frenzy days.

The FAFSA opens on October 1 for high school seniors and college students, and the sooner you can submit your application, the more likely you are to not miss out on any federal and state grant funding.

Please note that all FAFSA Frenzy events will be held virtually for the fall 2020 semester.
