Future and current college students and their families can receive free help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at FAFSA Frenzy on Wednesday, October 16, at the Westover Administration Building, rooms 302 and 304, on the Three Rivers College Poplar Bluff campus. Free one-on-one assistance will be available to assist families with filling out the 2020–2021 financial aid application from 2 to 6 p.m.
Completing the FAFSA is the first step in applying for federal financial aid, most state financial aid, and some scholarships. “We recommend completing a FAFSA even if you are unsure about your college plans,” said Alysia Musser, Student Loan Default Management Specialist at Three Rivers College.
The TRC event is open to everyone, whether or not you plan to attend Three Rivers.
Dependent students will need 2018 taxes for both parents and student (if applicable). Parents will need an FSA ID along with the student. Students are considered dependent if they are under 24 years old, not married, and do not have children.

Students attending a FAFSA Frenzy activity can apply for a FAFSA Frenzy scholarship for the 2020 fall enrollment in a Missouri postsecondary program.
