As of October 1st, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) filing period is now open! Come in between 1PM-3PM on Fridays through October and November to ask questions and get the help you need to fill out the FAFSA. There is no RSVP or appointment required for these walk-in times, but please bring the following items:

File your FAFSA so you can find out how much in grants (free money) you may qualify for! Also keep in mind, many scholarships require you to submit proof that you've filled out a FAFSA - now is the time to check it off your list.
