Super FAFSA Project Virginia

For several years, the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) and the Educational Credit Management Corp. (ECMC) have partnered with Virginia high schools to host events at which high school seniors and their parents receive free, professional assistance with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The project, Super FAFSA Project Virginia, is an annual statewide initiative designed to increase FAFSA completion throughout the Commonwealth with a special focus on schools that serve a student population where 50 percent or more are eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program for free and reduced-priced lunches – the population in greatest need of guidance and resources to conquer the financial-aid process. Many of the students who qualify for free and reduced-priced lunches will be eligible for free need-based financial aid including the federal Pell Grant. Completion of the FAFSA is the first step to receiving grants and other financial aid. Your school’s FAFSA completion data can be found here. 

FAFSA Release Date: The 2022-23 FAFSA is available October 1, 2021. Visit the Federal Student Aid website for more information.

Host sites receive the following: 

  • Site coordinator webinar training
  • Promotional materials
  • Stipend for hybrid or face-to-face event purchases
  • Statewide scholarship drawing
  • School competition for FAFSA completion

SCHEV values honesty, quality, diversity, inclusion, growth-orientation, personal well-being, equity, transparency and accountability.
Through these values, we create a welcoming work environment that represents the best of who we are as an agency and as individuals.
