It’s not too late! One of the best ways to make college affordable is by completing the FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid

Did you know? More than 50% of Florida college students qualify for Pell Grants (free money for college that does not need to be paid back)

Attend one of the FAFSA events and receive personalized assistance in completing the form. The event is free and open to the public.

  • Completing the FAFSA does not obligate you to any college
  • Some of the aid you might qualify for is first-come, first-served, which means it can run out if you wait too long to apply.
  • Scholarships are also available at SJR State

To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will need:
