FAFSA Frenzy helps thousands of Missouri students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid every year. The FAFSA is the primary form used by federal, state, and institutional financial assistance programs in determining an individual's eligibility for grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships.
The Missouri Department of Higher Education manages FAFSA Frenzy and partners with the Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel (MASFAP), the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority, and the national College Goal Sunday program. The national program, currently managed by the National College Access Network, was created by the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA) with funding from Lilly Endowment, Inc. and support from the Lumina Foundation for Education.

2015 W-2 forms.
Copies of your 2015 tax forms, if they are ready. If you or your parents have not yet filed your 2015 returns before you attend a 2016 FAFSA Frenzy event, be sure to bring any statements of interest earned in 2015, any 1099 forms, and any other forms required to complete your taxes. This will allow you and your parents to submit your FAFSA online during the event you attend. You will then need to go back to the FAFSA and submit corrections once tax returns are filed. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool should be available to help submit your corrections accurately within a few weeks after your tax file date.
