The Escambia County FAFSA® Challenge has kicked off for the 2018-2019 school year with a goal of increasing FAFSA completion rates by 5% for the graduating class of 2019 compared to 2018. FAFSA® completion is the first step in helping students finance post-secondary education. Achieve Escambia will host a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) Completion Labs to provide in-person guidance to any student wanting help with filling out the financial aid form. Achieve Escambia staff will be on hand to offer assistance and answer any FAFSA-related questions.
What to Bring to a FAFSA® Lab:
An FSA ID to sign electronically. Both the student and at least one parent needs an FSA ID.
