College financial aid administrators and specialists will be available across North Carolina on Saturday, Feb. 22, to help high school seniors and families complete and submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms online. There will be free FAFSA Day programs in all 100 counties with most sites open from 9 a.m. until noon.
Completing the FAFSA form is required to be considered for all federal and most state financial aid for college, including scholarships and grants. This year’s statewide FAFSA Day is sponsored by College Foundation of North Carolina, the North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and State Employees’ Credit Union.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. The more than 300 sites that are available include campus sites and State Employees’ Credit Union branches. The Credit Union can assist SECU members in any branch location; however, in counties where there are no campus sites, the Credit Union will serve members and non-members. A list of all locations and registration is available at CFNC.org/FAFSAday or by calling 866-866-CFNC toll-free.
