FAFSA Finish Events

Register below to participate in a Frederick County FAFSA Finish event. Financial aid experts will be available to help answer your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) questions during these workshop-style events.

These appointments are also available to assist families in completing the Maryland State Financial Aid Application (MSFAA). The MSFAA allows qualified children of undocumented immigrants, who qualify for in-state tuition under §15–106.8 of the MD Education Article, to apply and be considered for certain types of State need-based financial aid.

FAFSA and MSFAA applications must be completed by March 1, 2023 for a student to be considered for state-based financial aid.

These events will be taking place inside at Frederick County Public School (FCPS) locations and at Frederick Community College.
