The October FAFSA and Financial Aid event co-sponsored by Vermont Student Assistance Corporation and SHS will be postponed until December. With changes in the FAFSA and the timeline in which families are able to access the FAFSA, hosting the event in December will allow families to have more support with FAFSA completion. Once we have new event details confirmed that will be shared with families. In the meantime if you have questions about setting up your FSA ID please sign up for a virtual help session with VSAC (scroll to the bottom to see upcoming events). To learn more about the changes to the FAFSA please read these 2 articles:
