Deadlines are approaching for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, better known as FAFSA.
FAFSA is an application that takes a family’s financial information as a way to determine which students get aid or scholarships. Applicants who have not yet filed taxes for this year should not worry; last years taxes can be used as an estimate.
For those who are having trouble navigating through the application, trained volunteers are available this week as a part of an event called College Goal Sunday.
According to event organizers, the help is free and information is available on how to apply, state-wide student services, and admission requirements.
For a list of College Goal Sunday locations and a list of materials to bring, visit College Goal Sunday’s website.
A completed FAFSA is a requirement for many colleges.
