The Montgomery College Office of Student Financial Aid invites you to attend FAFSA Fever, a free event to help current and prospective college students and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the required application used to determine eligibility for grants, work-study, and student loans. The FAFSA for the 2020-2021 academic year will be available beginning October 1, 2019.

At FAFSA Fever, students and families will meet with financial aid administrators, get a line-by-line explanation of the FAFSA, and use the Montgomery College computer labs to submit the FAFSA online. 

FAFSA Fever will take place on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Rockville Campus.  Registration will take place in the lobby of the Science Center Building (SC).  Parking will be available in Parking Lot 11. See campus map.

Registration is required and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, October 31, 2019, or when all time slots are filled. Review the documents required to fill out the FAFSA and be sure to bring any necessary documents with you. 

For more information or special accommodations, contact Rhonda McLaren-Scott at 240-567-4155 or by email. Special accommodations must be requested two weeks prior to the event.
