St. Johns River State College is proud to host FAFSA Frenzy

FAFSA Frenzy

FAFSA Frenzy
Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first and most important step in applying for financial aid. Students who apply early and meet deadlines increase their chances of an affordable college experience.

Each year, millions of financial aid dollars go unclaimed. Attend our October information sessions and learn how to complete the FAFSA (available in December).

To apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing and submitting the FAFSA gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school. All students and prospective students are encouraged to attend and determine if they qualify for financial aid assistance.

Attendees are highly encouraged to RSVP the event AND to apply for their student/parent federal student aid ID prior to the event to ensure prompt verification and completion of the application during the event. To create the FSA ID, visit:
