Free FAFSA Completion Events – Multiple Dates

Free FAFSA Completion Events – Multiple Dates (November 2021)

Tuesday, November 2, 2021 — 4-7 PM

The Syracuse City School District has partnered with New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association (NYSFAAA) and New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) to offer you free professional assistance with the 2022-2023 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) applications. Financial aid administrators from local colleges will be on hand at the sites and dates listed below both in-person and virtually. All events will be held at the respective high school, but also have an online component. Families may connect online from the high school or from the comfort of your own home. Students are encouraged to bring earphones or a headset to the event in case their FAFSA volunteer is remote.

Current COVID guidelines require everyone to wear a mask at events held at secondary schools. Those without a mask will be provided a mask. No one will be admitted to this event without a face covering.
