VSAC Financial Aid Forms Night
Tuesday October 22nd
6:00pm - 7:30pm
The VSAC Financial Aid Forms Night is a hands-on workshop to help parents of seniors and their students complete the 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid(FAFSA). ANY student wanting consideration for federal or college based grants or scholarships must complete the FAFSA. No student is considered for college based scholarships unless they have also completed the FAFSA. Help is available in the workshop to complete the FAFSA and the Vermont Grant application. Only minimal support is available for completing the CSS Profile.
This workshop is only for parents of seniors and students graduating from high school in 2020.
PLEASE go to www.studentaid.gov/fsaid and create a “Federal Student Aid ID” before coming to the Forms Night workshop. The student and one parent MUST create their own separate “FSA ID”. Students must also have a “MyVSAC” account. Go here to develop that account: https://secureacctaccess.vsac.org/myvsac/. Only the student needs this account.
