The Financial Aid Office at North Central Missouri College in Trenton will take part in FAFSA Frenzy, a nationwide event designed to help college students fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on Saturday, March 2.
The FAFSA is the first step in applying for federal financial aid and state aid programs.
The U.S. Department of Education will make more than $150 billion in postsecondary financial aid available to students throughout the nation next year. Additionally, scholarships will be drawn for students who attend a FAFSA event in Missouri.
Students and their families will be able to complete the 2013-14 FAFSA on-line with the help of financial aid professionals, and families who have not yet completed their 2012 tax returns will be able to obtain valuable information to help them submit their FAFSA at a later date.
FAFSA Frenzy, a program of College Goal Sunday, is offered in Missouri through partnerships with 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. This is the tenth year that Missouri has participated.
NCMCâ€™s FAFSA Frenzy will be Saturday, March 2 from 2 till 4 p.m. in Hoffman Hall on the college campus in downtown Trenton. All prospective students and their families are invited to attend. Questions can be directed to Miles Moore, Cashier, at (660)359-3948 ext. 1513 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
