FAFSA Completion Appointments for School Year 2023-2024

You may request a one-on-one FAFSA or VASA support session with a CAF Champion using the form below.

You may also choose to attend one of several FAFSA and VASA completion events listed on our main page – you can attend any session, regardless of base school. 

Please note the following before making an appointment:

  • The FAFSA form will ask you to agree to have information pulled from the  IRS Direct Data Exchange.  If you are unwilling to agree to use the IRS Direct Data Exchange, we will be unable to assist you in completing the FAFSA.  Your application will NOT be processed without that agreement.  We have limited staff and resources and will be utilizing those resources to assist those whose FAFSA can be processed.
  •  If you do not have your FSA ID (for both the student and at least one parent) we will only be able to help you obtain your FSA IDs at your first appointment.  You cannot both obtain your FSA ID and complete your FAFSA in one sitting.  Please try to arrive at your appointment with a verified FSA ID (student and parent)

Our Calendar shows upcoming College Access Fairfax seminars and links.   You will be able to view recorded seminars on our Workshops page after they are completed.

  • Paying for College – an overview of the financial aid process.
  • FAFSA Line by Line – we review each question on the FAFSA and explain what information is needed.
  • CSS Profile Line-by-Line – information on how to complete the CSS Profile.
  • Scholarship 101 – information on where to find scholarships and how best to present oneself in a scholarship application.
  • Financial Award Letters – the components of a financial award package and how to compare schools packages.

Powerpoint presentations of each of these seminars can be found on our Workshops page.
