FAFSA Frenzy Logo


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.


Hosting FAFSA Frenzy

The 2019-20 FAFSA should be available October 1, 2018, and high schools, postsecondary institutions, and community organizations may host FAFSA completion activities through January 31, 2019. The 2018-19 FAFSA Frenzy site registration form is available through Friday, August 24, end of day.


Missouri's high schools are encouraged to participate in both FAFSA Frenzy and Missouri's FAFSA Completion Project, which allows schools to receive reports showing the students that have completed their FAFSA. FAFSA Frenzy and FAFSA Completion Reports work hand-in-hand as we strive to have high school seniors finalize their postsecondary educational plans by Decision Day in the spring.
