February is FAFSA season. Filling out the form is crucial. Last year, Florida high school seniors left behind $100 million in federal financial aid through their low completion rates. Yesterday, even First Lady Michelle Obama weighed in on the subject, making an appearance at a Virginia high school, urging students to complete the online form.

“For those of you who might be wondering why the First Lady is here just to watch you fill out a computer form, it’s because competing this form is a critical start to completing your education,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. “As the President and I will continue to stress over the next several years and beyond to young people throughout this country, completing your education whether it’s a 2-year, 4-year college or vocational program, is the single most important thing you can do for your future.”

In Florida, students and families can get free, professional help with the FAFSA at College Goal Sunday, conducted over the last weekend in February. This year, the event is being coordinated by the Florida Dept. of Education. To find out a local time and location in your region of Florida, scan the list below or download the whole directory here. College Goal Sunday is an annual event that provides students and families with free, on-site, professional assistance in completing the FAFSA.

Over at the Florida FAFSA Finish Line, a new map table plots out the high schools and community centers and community colleges hosting a College Goal Sunday event while allowing readers to see local FAFSA completion rates at area high schools.
