Get help completing the FAFSA

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 the FAFSA Frenzy program 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.


FAFSA Frenzy 2016-17

The 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid will be available in October 2016. High schools, postsecondary institutions, and community organizations may host FAFSA Frenzy activities through January 31, 2017. Visit the online Journey to College site list to see if your high school is participating in FAFSA Frenzy, or find a local event open to the community at dhe.mo.gov/ppc/ffsites.php.

Students who attend a FAFSA Frenzy event will receive:

What to bring to a FAFSA Frenzy event:

  • Student and parent FSA ID information.

  • List of schools to which the student has applied, been accepted, or is interested in attending.

  • Student and parent 2015 W-2 forms and/or tax return copies. Parental information is required for most undergraduate students under the age of 24. (The definition of "Dependent Student" may be found in the glossary.)

After submitting a FAFSA, a College cost comparison worksheet is available to help students compare college costs and financial aid awards to help make a decision.
