The Capital Area College Access Network (CapCAN) launched the #FAFSAFlocked campaign in 2019 to increase completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) across the region. CapCAN works with the college advisers to promote FAFSA completion by “flocking” schools with flamingos as a reminder to seniors to complete the FAFSA by March 1st.
FAFSA is a critical step in the college-going process for seniors to access the federal, state, and institutional funding that they need to attend and complete a postsecondary degree or credential. CapCAN has received grant funding from the Michigan State University Financial Credit Union (MSUFCU) Desk Drawer Fund to support the awareness campaign among Eaton and Ingham high school seniors and their families. Help us promote #FAFSAFlocked by following CapCAN on social media using these hashtags.

If you need assistance completing the FAFSA please contact your school’s counselor, college adviser or call 517-203-5011 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
CapCAN is committed to making college both accessible and affordable. Don’t let the sticker price deter you from pursuing a post-secondary degree or credential. What you and your family actually will have to pay may be offset by federal and state financial aid, scholarships, and working part-time.
