Clark State Community College will hold a series of workshops to assist current and future students in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
FAFSA is a form completed by current and prospective college students in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid, said director of financial aid at Clark State, Suzanne Harmon.
“The FAFSA is the key to funding a college education and helping families to overcome financial barriers that otherwise prevent students from attending the institution of their choice,” Harmon said. “Getting ready for a new semester or a new school year often starts with scoping out costs and ways to pay for college.”

Filling out the FAFSA form is an important first step in the education process, Harmon said.
“We are here to help,” Harmon said.
