The 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) became available October 1, 2016. College-bound students and their families can get professional assistance filling out the FAFSA form at the first annual FAFSA Fever event. This event will be hosted by the Montgomery College Office of Student Financial Aid on Saturday, November 5 from 12–3 p.m. at Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus in the Science Center located at 51 Mannakee Street.
FAFSA Fever is an event to assist families as they complete the FAFSA—the form required by colleges and universities to qualify for scholarships, grants and loans. FAFSA Fever is free and open to the public, and Spanish interpreters will be available. Current college students who may be filling out the FAFSA form for the first time are also welcome at this event.
Students and families will have the opportunity to meet with financial aid professionals and use the Montgomery College computer labs to submit their FAFSA form online. Information will be available about Maryland state grants and scholarships. Students can also enter to win a $250 scholarship.
Students who are 23 years old or younger should attend FAFSA Fever with a parent or guardian. Families should bring copies of their completed IRS 1040 tax form, W-2 form or other 2015 income and benefits information to assist with the completion of the FAFSA form. Students who are 24 years and older may attend alone and bring their own tax return, W-2 form and other 2015 income and benefits information.
