The event is designed to help Wisconsin students and their families submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is needed to qualify for federal and state financial aid including grants and loans. Financial aid professionals and other educators volunteer at the event to help students and their families complete the FAFSA. Anyone who is planning to pursue a college education in the 2020-21 academic year should complete the FAFSA. That includes high school seniors, continuing college students, transfer students, and adult students considering pursuing higher education.
In order to complete the FAFSA at the event, attendees are encouraged to bring additional documentation such as a driver’s license, 2018 federal tax return and W2s. Those who are considered a dependent students will need these items for their parents. However, if a parent isn’t available, students are still encouraged to attend.
In addition to getting professional help completing the FAFSA, attendees will have the opportunity to enter a scholarship drawing.
