Shawnee Community College plans to host several Federal Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA, completion events during October. Starting this year, students will be able to file for FAFSA as early as Oct. 1 for the 2017-2018 academic year, using their 2015 income. You can attend one of the following SCC FAFSA completion events: Shawnee Community College Anna Extension Center on Oct. 3 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Vienna High School in the media center on Oct. 5 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Shawnee Community College Metropolis Extension Center on Oct. 18 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Shawnee Community College main campus near Ullin on Oct. 24 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and Shawnee Community College Cairo Extension Center on Oct. 27 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. A FAFSA must be on file to receive a scholarship, grant or loan at any college or university. Students should apply early to avoid missing the State of Illinois MAP, Monetary Award Program, grant deadline. Prior to attending a FAFSA completion event, students must create an FSA ID at www.studentaid.gov/fsaid for the student (and parent, if the student is dependent). The FSA ID takes one to three days to verify with the Social Security Administration. Get details on what items to bring with you at annanews.com
