College Goal Sunday scheduled for FAFSA help

Financial aid professionals will be volunteering at 2 p.m. Feb. 23 at Ivy Tech Community College’s Logansport Campus, 1 Ivy Way, and 38 other Indiana sites to help college-bound students and their families open the door to financial aid during College Goal Sunday.

Kokomo Campus is hosting a few workshops all from 5 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 25 and 27, and also March 3, 5 and 7, all in Room M105. Contact Lucy Sommers, kokomo-finaid@ivytech.edu or call 765-459-0561, ext. 244.

Logansport Campus is hosting some from 2 to 4 p.m. March 4, 10 and 12 and one from 4 to 6 p.m. March 6, all in room 270. Contact Brenda Hamilton, bhamilton11@ivytech.edu, or call 574-753-5101 ext. 2173.

Peru Instrucional Site is hosting a few different sessions, 4 to 6 p.m. Feb. 25 in Room 112/class lab; from 1 to 3 p.m. March 3 in Room 109/open lab; and from 10 to 2 p.m. March 10 in Room 109/open lab.

The free program is designed to assist Indiana students seeking undergraduate admission to a college or technical school in 2014 in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, loans and scholarships at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide and must be filed by March 10 to be eligible for state aid. Completing this required form correctly and by the deadline is sometimes perceived to be complicated and time consuming. In one afternoon at College Goal Sunday, students and their families can get free help and file the form online.

According to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education’s Division of Student Financial Aid (SFA), programs like College Goal Sunday are reaching first-generation college students. In addition, according to SFA statistics, in recent years, more single-parent Hoosier families have filed for financial aid, indicating programs like College Goal Sunday are reaching high-risk students and their families.
