Help in completing the FAFSA

From DPI: College Goal Wisconsin: Feb. 23-24

Parents and students can get free help in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) this February, at 31 locations around the state.

The FAFSA is the form all colleges and universities require of students to be considered for federal and state financial aid.

At College Goal Wisconsin, held either Saturday, February 23, or Sunday, February 24, depending on the venue, a quick overview of what financial aid is precedes computer lab time where applicants actually begin filling out the FAFSA. If they bring the necessary paperwork, they can complete the form that day and submit it. The events all start at 2 p.m.

Also, students planning to enter college in Fall 2013 can enter a drawing for scholarships of $250 to $1,000. At each of the 31 locations, one student will win.

College Goal Wisconsin is staffed by volunteers from postsecondary education, high school counselors, and community members.

The event is asking schools and educators to help spread the word to students, by linking to the College Goal Wisconsinwebsite or making use of their postcard, PowerPoint slides, orother materials.
