2015 Site Hosting Application
The 2015 FAFSA Frenzy site hosting application is now available. Missouri would like to increase the number of statewide sites for 2015 and welcomes your application. The deadline to apply is Friday, August 22, 2014. The year's site application includes a mandatory question for a planned inclement weather date because this information will be published within the full site list on dhe.mo.gov. If you have any questions or concerns as you complete the site application, you may contact Jaron Vail.
2015 Site Coordinator Toolkit
The MDHE is in the process of developing the 2015 Site Coordinator Toolkit, which should be available this fall providing site coordinators with checklists, flyers, forms, a fillable news release template and other helpful information to help site coordinators plan a successful event. In the meantime, you may find the 2014 Site Coordinator Toolkit helpful to review.
