SJR State to hold spring financial aid, FAFSA events

FAFSA Frenzy

PALATKA, FL (January 23, 2023) – St. Johns River State College will present “FASFA Frenzy,” a free workshop providing assistance in applying for financial aid, at its three campuses this spring.

“Finances should not be a barrier to attending college,” said SJR State’s Financial Aid Director Suzanne Evans. “The event will provide qualified students with assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is the first and most important step in applying for financial aid.” Walk-ins are welcome.

Students can base their financial information on the previous year’s tax return. Potential students intending to enroll in college during the 2023-24 academic year are encouraged to complete the form as soon as possible, as some funds are awarded on an as-needed basis while others are awarded first-come, first-served.

FAFSA Frenzy nights are scheduled for:

SJR State Palatka Campus
Monday, February 6 - 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., Viking Center

SJR State Orange Park Campus
Tuesday, February 7 - 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., D building

SJR State St. Augustine Campus
Thursday, February 9 - 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., H building

During the event, current and potential students can participate in free step-by-step instructions for completing and submitting the FAFSA, along with the Florida Financial Aid Application. Computers will be provided.

To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), students/parents will need to bring the following:

  • Social Security Number
  • Driver's License Number
  • Alien Registration Number (if not a U.S. citizen)
  • Most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
  • Records of untaxed income (if applicable)

Filling out the FAFSA doesn't obligate students to a particular career track or college.
