Future and current college students and their families can receive free help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at FAFSA Frenzy from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. October 25-26, at the Testing Center in the Westover Administration Building on the Three Rivers College Poplar Bluff campus.
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 Regina Morris, Director of Financial Aid at Three Rivers College.
The TRC event is open to everyone, whether or not you plan to attend Three Rivers.
Dependent students will need 2021 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.
Times, dates, and locations for all FAFSA Frenzy activities are available at journeytocollege.mo.gov/pay/file-a-fafsa/fafsa-frenzy/public-fafsa-frenzy-events/.
Academic year 2022-23 marks the 20th year Missouri has offered the FAFSA Frenzy program. Since 2004, FAFSA Frenzy events have provided assistance to more than 25,000 Missouri students.
FAFSA Frenzy, sponsored by the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development, is a part of national completion efforts lead by the National College Access Network.
