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 Mississippi Aid Application (MAAPP) with guidance on funding from federal, state, college, and private resources. The FAFSA completion sentence with: The FAFSA completion event delivery format will be determined between the high school and the FAFSA volunteer point of contact (see below).
Schools are encouraged to plan FAFSA Days as soon as possible. The FAFSA is available as early as October 1 which allows students more time to explore and understand their financial aid options and determine what colleges they can best afford to attend.
Schools that are registered with College Countdown MS are provided with marketing tools to promote the event, and students are notified of what information to bring to their appointment. Counselors and teachers, see the chart below to schedule a FAFSA Days based on your location. If you don’t see the county where your school is located, contact Shannon Grimsley at 601.321.5530 for details and alternatives to help your seniors complete the FAFSA.
Join College Countdown Mississippi as they provide an overview and instruction on how to utilize the FAFSA Day Toolkit resource.
