• FAFSA Assistance for High School Seniors

    Virginia College Access Network and the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) are partnering on a statewide FAFSA completion effort meant to address disproportionate effects of the pandemic on low-income and underrepresented students in the class of 2021 and 2020. Five college access organizations have banded together to offer one-on-one FAFSA assistance from March 15th – June 30th.  Use the link below to schedule a meeting, and you will be connected with an access provider from Access College Foundation, ECMC’s The College Places, GReat Aspirations Scholarship Program (GRASP), the Virginia Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (VASFAA), or the Virginia College Advising Corps (VCAC). 

    Appointments will generally be one hour. As you register, you’ll be asked to provide some basic information such as name, email address, and high school. Prior to your appointment, you will receive an email detailing important information and documents to have on hand for your online meeting. Please note: These appointments are ONLY for assistance filling out the FAFSA form, and are ONLY for current high school seniors (class of 2021), or class of 2020 high school seniors.
