College Countdown MS FAFSA Days provides students and their parents with one-on-one assistance in completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)and the MS Office of Student Financial Aid application with guidance on funding from federal, state, college, and private resources. The FAFSA Days take place at high schools with students making 30-minute appointments to ensure one-on-one assistance is available. FIRST YOU HAFTA
Schools are encouraged to plan FAFSA Days in the fall this year. Changes to the FAFSA allow filing to begin October 1 as opposed to January 1 in the past. This earlier filing date allows students more time to explore and understand their financial aid options and determine what colleges they can best afford to attend.

Participating high school counselors are provided with marketing tools to promote the event, and students are notified of what information to bring to their appointment. Check out our short Guide to a Successful FAFSA Day. Counselors may schedule FAFSA Days with Shannon Grimsley, Get2College Outreach Program Director, at 601.321.5530 or sgrimsley@get2college.org. Check the list of FAFSA Days at participating schools below.
