One-on-one Clinics:

All one-on-one clinics are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment for any of the following clinics, please contact The Scholarship Foundation directly at (314) 725-7990 or info@sfstl.org.

Having trouble with your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID (username and password)? Setting up an FSA ID correctly is a critical first step in completing the FAFSA. If you want to be sure you set it up correctly, or if you need help retrieving or resetting your FSA ID before the 2024-25 FAFSA opens, please schedule an appointment so an advisor can assist you. All students will need an FSA ID to file their FAFSA and many students will need their parent(s) to have one too.

FSA ID Creation and Problem Solving One-on-one Clinic – Oct 28, 2023, 10am-12pm.

Looking for assistance with completing the FAFSA? Look no further! The Foundation’s team of expert advisors are available to help you file your FAFSA. With the 2024-25 FAFSA opening in December 2023, and Missouri’s priority FAFSA deadline on February 1, 2024, the Foundation’s Student Advisors are available to provide one-on-one assistance and answer your questions.
