Indiana offers free virtual help filling out FAFSA forms

The state of Indiana is hosting a free virtual FAFSA Frenzy event on Saturday, April 4 for students who will be attending college next year. The deadline to file is April 15.

The FAFSA Frenzy event is usually offered in person, but it will be held virtually to keep everyone safe.

The event is from 1 to 3 p.m.

Students and families can seek assistance through the Indiana Commission for Higher Education's Learn More Indiana social media platforms, which will be manned by Commission staff members during the live event. Staff will be answering common FAFSA questions and posting videos about the FAFSA. Follow along on social media with the #FAFSAFrenzyIN hashtag.
