Need Money for College? FAFSA Frenzy Friday Can Help Walk You Through the Steps

More and more students are in need of financial aid. Simplifying the application process is the purpose of a free workshop being offered by Valencia Community College called FAFSA Frenzy Friday. Valencia’s financial aid experts will be on hand to assist you with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA, whether you’re a first-time applicant or are reapplying for next year.

Those students who complete their FAFSA on site are eligible to enter a drawing to win one of three laptop computers. Attendance at Valencia is not required to participate in the event or the drawing.

The next FAFSA Frenzy Friday is scheduled for 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Feb. 18 on the Osceola Campus, Bldg. 2, Rm. 115

There are a number of documents you will need to bring with you, including a social security card, driver’s license and proof of 2010 income. Go to the FAFSA Frenzy website for details and to register.

This event was made possible with support from Valencia’s Student Development office and from USA Funds®, a nonprofit organization that helps American families benefit from postsecondary education.

Valencia participates in most federal, state, and local financial aid programs, awarding over $150 million each year to students. Approximately 49 percent of Valencia students receive financial aid. Among those students is the largest enrollment of Bright Futures recipients among Florida State Colleges.
