The events are free.

The FAFSA and Admissions Marathons are an interactive series of three consecutive workshops for graduating high school seniors hosted in the high schools.

During the workshop, parents and students can learn about the financial aid options available, including scholarships, grants and loans, and Miami Dade College experts will work with them individually to complete an online FAFSA application. 

Representatives from MDC’s registrar’s office will also be on-site to answer enrollment questions and help graduating students complete applications to the college.

In order to complete the FAFSA and MDC’s admission application, parents are advised to bring to the session:

1) 2012 or 2011 income tax return;

2) parent’s Florida driver’s license;

3) parent’s voter registration or parent’s permanent residency card (if he or she is not a citizen)

4) parent’s vehicle registration (or other document that demonstrates Florida residency.)

Officials said the goal of the marathons is to increase high school student enrollment in postsecondary education. Students must be a graduating senior at one of the high schools listed at right in order to attend
a workshop.

The list includes the dates/times scheduled for each school.  To register for a session, please contact the high school’s CAP advisor or graduation coach.
