Next school year, the U.S. Department of Education will make more than $150 billion in postsecondary financial aid available to students throughout the nation.  FAFSA Frenzymakes applying for financial aid easier by providing students and their parents with free help filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the first step in applying for federal financial aid and many state programs such as A+.

 

To assist students and parents with the FAFSA process, financial aid professionals will be on hand at East Central College Saturday, February 16, between 2 and 5 p.m. in Room 122 of the Health and Science Building on the Union campus. 

 

Families will have assistance in completing the 2013-2014 FAFSA on-site and obtaining valuable information.  Families should bring their 2012 income tax returns and/or 2012 W-2 forms, or their 2012 year-end pay stubs and 2011 income tax returns.

 

ECC is one of 54 FAFSA Frenzy sites in Missouri. 

 

Karen Griffin, director of financial aid at ECC, noted that students attending FAFSA Frenzy in Missouri will be entered in a drawing for scholarships.  “Winners will receive their scholarships upon receipt of enrollment verification for the 2013 fall term in a Missouri postsecondary program,” said Griffin.

 

“This marks the tenthyear that Missouri has participated in the FAFSA events,” she said.  “Over the past nine years, more than 9,500 Missouri students have attended and received help in completing the FAFSA.”        

 

FAFSA Frenzy, a program of College Goal Sunday, 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.
