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 Access Network.

The 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid will be available in October 2017. High schools, colleges, and community organizations may host FAFSA Frenzy activities Oct. 1, 2017 through Jan. 31, 2018. Visit the online Journey to College site list to see if your high school is participating during the 2017-18 program year, or find a local event open to the public at dhe.mo.gov/ppc/ffsites.php.

Students who attend a FAFSA Frenzy event will receive:

What to bring to a 2017-18 FAFSA Frenzy event in order to complete the 2018-19 FAFSA:

  • 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 2016 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.
