State Fair Community College will again host one of Missouri’s annual “FAFSA Frenzy” events later this month in an effort to help college-bound students apply for financial aid.

The free come-and-go workshop will be held on October 25 from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. in the Donald C. Proctor Library computer lab in the Yeater Learning Center on the Sedalia campus.

FAFSA Frenzy is described as a way to offer free help to prospective and current students and parents in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which is the first step in applying for federal, state and institutional financial assistance programs.

SFCC says that financial aid professionals will be on-hand to assist attendees in completing the 2019-2020 FAFSA and provide information about federal and state funding, as well as scholarships. The college noted that attendees should bring their 2017 W-2 forms and/or tax return copies.

Drawings will be made for scholarships for students attending the Missouri events. SFCC says that winners will receive their scholarships upon receipt of enrollment verification for the 2019 fall term in a Missouri postsecondary program. There will also be drawings for door prizes during the event.

SFCC is one of 53 public sites hosting FAFSA Frenzy events in the state.

The events are offered through partnerships between the Missouri Department of Higher Education and the Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel, the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority and National College Access Network.
