Southwest to host FAFSA sessions in April at Macon Cove Campus

If you are new to FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or need more information, seize the opportunity to attend one of our information sessions throughout April at our Macon Cove Campus. This year’s FAFSA form has some changes from last year, so you won’t want to miss out on attending these sessions. FAFSA is used to determine state and federal financial aid for college including the TN Promise. The sooner you apply, the greater your opportunity to receive financial aid.
