See also

The Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel (MASFAP), the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority, and the Missouri Department of Higher Education have partnered with the Lumina Foundation for Education and USA Funds to coordinate the College Goal Sunday program for 2013.

In Missouri, the program name has changed to "FAFSA Frenzy" and sessions will be offered on a designated Sunday afternoon, as has been the case historically, with one Kansas City metro location offering a Saturday option instead.

This statewide program is free to attend and offers high school seniors and their families the opportunity to meet with financial aid professionals and to receive hands-on assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Unless otherwise noted, the event will take place on Sunday, February 17 from 2pm to 4pm.

WHAT TO BRING

  • 2012 W-2 forms
  • copies of 2012 tax forms
  • If 2012 returns have not been filed, bring statements of interest earned in 2012, last December 2012 pay stub showing year to date earnings, 2011 tax forms
  • Student AND parent PINs (apply for PINs at www.pin.ed.gov BEFORE attending)

Participants will also be eligible for a chance to win a scholarship toward attendance at a Missouri college or university.
