FAFSA Information
  • The 2021-2022 Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now open for completion! Students must complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov by 11:59 PM on February 1, 2021 for TN Promise eligibility and to receive other state and federal financial aid. We have lots of help available for FAFSA completion! West High is holding a FAFSA Frenzy event on November 11 (please see below for details). You may also contact our Niswonger advisor, Faith Dulling, at fdulling@niswongerfoundation.org to make an appointment if November 11th won't work for you.
: This year, THEC/TSAC is providing three new ways students and families can receive individual FAFSA completion assistance:
  1. “How to Complete a FAFSA“ Videos. These quick videos walk students through each step of completing a FAFSA. Videos can be accessed on YouTube here.
  2. Attend a Live Virtual Workshop. THEC/TSAC offers two virtual workshops every week where a Tennessee FAFSA expert walks students through completing the FAFSA. Students can register for a workshop here.
  3. Contact Us. If students need additional assistance completing the FAFSA, they can reach out to THEC/TSAC staff at FAFSA.Help@tn.gov. In the coming weeks, THEC/TSAC will a FAFSA hotline to provide a direct point of contact for students and their families to receive FAFSA help.
