COVID-19 Procedures

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the closure of in-person instruction for Fairfax County Public Schools, all services that are normally available through College Access Fairfax will be offered virtually.

The following parent/student seminars – geared mostly towards seniors at this time of year – were offered this year.  They have been recorded and are available on our Resources page.

  • 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.

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