Cleveland State Community College is hosting a FAFSA Frenzy Event on Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Thursday, Oct. 26 from 1-6 p.m. in the Enrollment Services Center on the main campus. There is also one scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 26 from 2:30-6 p.m. at the Athens Center. 

FAFSA Frenzy is designed to share tools and resources among Tennessee school counselors and college access professionals to support Tennessee students in completing the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Cleveland State staff will offer assistance to students with:

? 2018-2019 FAFSA
? 2018 Tennessee Promise Application
? Cleveland State Scholarship Application
? Application for Admission

“We know that a lot of people feel overwhelmed or intimidated by completing the FAFSA, but the CSCC Financial Aid staff is always happy to help,” stated Portia Cook, Financial Aid specialist. “Completing the FAFSA in October has a lot of great benefits, like allowing us to process your financial aid earlier rather than later. Also, Tennessee Promise students should have their FAFSA completed by Jan, 17, 2018, along with those wishing to qualify for the Tennessee Student Assistance Award.”

FAFSA Frenzy events are open to both current and incoming students. For more information on FAFSA Frenzy, contact Ms. Cook at 423-614-8710.
