‘Ville’s FAFSA Fiesta Helps All

Millersville’s FAFSA Fiesta events will be held on July 16 and August 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Ware Center.

This summer, Millersville University is participating in FAFSA Fiesta to help students and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Completing the FAFSA is a crucial step in securing the financial aid necessary to make educational dreams a reality, and through the “FAFSA Fiesta,” the University is committed to making that process as smooth and accessible as possible.

The FAFSA Fiesta events will be held on July 16 and August 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Ware Center. These events feature personalized assistance from Millersville’s Financial Aid team, language support in eight different languages, and the opportunity to engage with financial aid experts while enjoying light refreshments. For more information and to register, visit the FAFSA Fiesta Registration page.

Millersville’s FAFSA Fiesta is a response to a national decline in FAFSA submissions. Millersville University is collaborating with other universities within Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education to boost FAFSA completions. The PASSHE Foundation has been granted $357,602, administered by the Educational Credit Management Corporation with funding from the U.S. Department of Education, to support this summer’s FAFSA outreach. Millersville, along with Commonwealth, Shippensburg, and Slippery Rock universities, is spearheading a regional initiative to assist students across the Commonwealth in submitting the FAFSA. Help is available to students attending both PASSHE and non-PASSHE institutions.

For those unable to attend the FAFSA events, Millersville’s financial aid team is available to assist Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. One-hour appointments are offered in person, by phone, or virtually via Zoom. Schedule your appointment here.

Millersville’s Office of Financial Aid provides helpful tips and resources for those who feel more comfortable starting the FAFSA process on their own. Learn more here.
