FAFSA Volunteers

In order to meet the growing demand in FAFSA completion assistance across the state of Mississippi, Get2College established a FAFSA volunteer network in 2016, beginning with 150 volunteers. This number increased to more than 220 In 2017, and it continues to grow every year.

 

Who Are FAFSA Volunteers?

The FAFSA volunteer network is made up of individuals with all types of backgrounds: community college employees, financial aid staff from two- and four-year colleges, high school counselors or support staff, MDE employees, Phi Theta Kappa advisors and staff, and community members.

 

How Do I Become a FAFSA Volunteer?

  • Register to participate in FAFSA completion events across the state

What Does a FAFSA Volunteer Do?

FAFSA volunteers participate in FAFSA completion events in their areas, typically held at high schools during the day or in the evening. As a FAFSA volunteer you will have 30-minute, one-on-one meetings with a student or family and complete their FAFSA and Mississippi financial aid application. In addition, you will counsel the student/family on their college planning and financial aid process. All of this will be covered in the FAFSA training, and in case questions come up, you can always ask the staff member who will be onsite from Get2College or our partners.
