Virtual 2021-2022 FAFSA Completion Workshop
ETSU would like to cordially invite seniors and parents to their Virtual FAFSA Completion Workshop that runs from Oct. 5 through Oct. 9.
ETSU will have staff available to virtually assist students and their families in completing the 2021-22 FAFSA. We ask that students who plan to participate register here by September 30. Students and their families may select a meeting time that is most convenient for them.
