Find A FAFSA Workshop Near You
Last updated February 16, 2022
If you need money for college, the FAFSA provides resources to find reliable student aid. For some, however, filing the FAFSA can be a source of anxiety. With over 100 questions, complicated language, and a new FSA ID policy, the FAFSA can seem more like a brainteaser than a financial aid application. How do we know? We’ve been there.
To make sure you complete your application, we’ve compiled a list of select FAFSA workshops broken down by state. These in-person and virtual workshops assist students and parents with their FAFSA – as well as additional state-specific documents – to receive the greatest amount of available financial aid.
