Kansas City, January 24, 2017: Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) and the Missouri College Advising Corps (MCAC) are hosting the KCPS FAFSA Day for high school seniors and their parents from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28 at Central Academy of Excellence, which is located at 3221 Indiana Ave. in Kansas City, Mo.
KCPS FAFSA Day is an opportunity for seniors to get guidance and assistance from MCAC experts with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. FAFSA completion is required for any student who wants to receive any college financial aid through state or federal programs.
Any student who wishes to participate in KCPS FAFSA Day should bring a laptop and charger, his or her Social Security number, an alien registration number if he or she is not a U.S. citizen, 2015 tax forms or W-2 forms, and records of any untaxed income (including Social Security payments, disability assistance, child support, etc.).
In addition to expert guidance on college financial aid, KCPS FAFSA Day will also include raffle giveaways and refreshments.
In Missouri, FAFSA forms are given priority for state college financial aid if they are submitted by Wednesday, Feb. 1.
