These events are done in a group setting, with families working independently to file the FAFSA with assistance from financial aid professionals as needed.  Families are encouraged to sign up for a FAFSA filing event at a campus near your high school or home. These FAFSA filing events are open to current high school seniors. Students do not need to be applying to a certain institution to take advantage of FAFSA filing on that campus.  To register for a filing event, please visit  A confirmation email will be sent to confirm specifics about the event, and to outline the materials needed to assure a successful FAFSA filing.
