       FAFSA Help

We all know that the FAFSA can be confusing at times and make students (and parents) want to procrastinate or not complete it at all, however, there are a multitude of resources to help the process go smoothly. Below are multiple videos to help you through some steps that seem to trip students up. If you are having troubles with steps that are not listed below, there are other resources you can utilize. All students can contact the Federal Student Aid Help Center for assistance filling out the FAFSA form, both over the phone or through screen-sharing services online. Contact information can be found here.  Additionally, if you are a Mississippi Resident, you can contact Get2College for more support both in person, over the phone, or by email.
