The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), is the only way to apply for federal student aid. The information you fill out on your FAFSA® will determine your financial need and determine how much federal aid you are eligible to receive.

Filing your FAFSA® can feel overwhelming, but we’re here for you!

During our #FAFSATODAY Thursday events, current students, returning students, prospective students, and parents can get expert one-on-one help from dedicated LSSC Financial Aid Counselors.

Any Lake or Sumter County high school and college-aged students (and their parents) are welcome to attend for help with the 2023-2024 FAFSA®!
