SCSD Provides FREE FAFSA AssistanceThe Syracuse City School District has partnered with two state agencies to provide our families with free online professional assistance completing the 2021-2022 college financial aid forms. Financial aid administrators from local colleges will be available online to help you and your college bound senior complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application. You may attend any of the 2021-2022 FAFSA completion events regardless of the school your child attends. All events are online and require an appointment.
You may schedule your appointment by clicking on the link for an online FAFSA completion date. You will receive an email confirmation of your appointment slot within 24 hours of your registration.
