Volunteer now for 2015 FAFSA Frenzy events

With 86 sites planning to conduct 88 events in more than 40 Missouri counties, there are plenty of opportunities for dedicated financial aid officers, guidance counselors, college access professionals, and other education professionals to volunteer at a convenient time and location. You do not have to be a financial aid or FAFSA expert to volunteer. Sites need volunteers for registration tables, attendee exit checkout, refreshment or child care assistance, and more. Submit your volunteer registration form today and help Missouri's students go to college during the 2015-2016 academic year.

2015 Site Coordinator Toolkit

The 2015 Site Coordinator Toolkit is now available! The toolkit provides checklists, flyers, forms, and other helpful information to help site coordinators plan a successful event. The toolkit is a fillable PDF format, allowing site coordinators to fill in the blanks on templates and forms before printing, and will be reviewed during the upcoming site coordinator meeting. Questions or comments about the toolkit may be directed to Julie Meyer.

Promote FAFSA Frenzy events by loading the electronic FAFSA Frenzy promotional wallpaper/screensaver to computers used frequently by students or families.
