Every student interested in receiving grant money, scholarships or student loans at Enterprise State Community College must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Sometimes, completing the FAFSA is more complicated than families think.
Thankfully, Enterprise State Community College has several teams available to assist families with what may sometimes be a tedious process. ESCC has also committed a special day for families to visit the campus and get the hands-on help that they need.
Money Matters, a free service ESCC provides to assist with the FAFSA, takes place Thursday, Nov. 8, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. inside the LBW Student Center Multipurpose Room. Computers with WIFI, handouts with valuable information, and ESCC Financial Aid Director, Dr. Chip Quisenberry, will be available. Dr. Quisenberry and his team will guide families past common mistakes made when completing the FAFSA, including missing signatures, incomplete income and asset information, and more.
Items needed to best assist you include:
2017 Tax Return & W-2
Social Security Numbers
Untaxed Income Information (VA Disability, Child Support Paid and Received)
Email Addresses and Passwords
FSA ID and Passwords (If Already Registered)
If a family misses the Money Matters event, there are other times scheduled at the following schools for ESCC to assist you:
Slocomb High School – November 1, 2018, beginning at 5pm.
Geneva County High School – November 6, 2018, beginning at 3pm.
Samson High School – November 13, 2018, beginning at 5pm.
Pike Liberal Arts – November 14, 2018, beginning at 1:30pm.
Enterprise High School – November 15, 2018, beginning at 5pm.
Even students who do not believe they may qualify for financial aid often receive some form of aid by completing the FAFSA. At ESCC, more than 80 percent of students qualify for some form of financial aid.
