The time to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2020-2021 academic year has arrived. Jackson State Community College is hosting a series of workshops to assist students and their parents in completing the application. The workshops will begin on October 28 with the last one being held on January 30.
Completion of the FAFSA is an essential requirement to access financial aid for attending college. This requirement extends to all of those who have applied for or receive the last-dollar scholarships known as Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect.
John Brandt, Director of Financial Aid, encourages everyone to attend the free workshops at JSCC. “This is a great opportunity to take care of this detail that is essential for receiving financial assistance of any kind,” said Brandt. “With a small amount of preparation, this task can be completed in approximately 30 minutes, and we are more than happy to help.”
The documentation needed at the workshop includes tax returns, W2 forms, amounts for child support paid or received, and any other relevant financial documents for the 2018 tax year. Students who are claimed as dependents are asked to bring a parent with them.
