LA CROSSE, Wis. – High school seniors and their families will be able to receive step-by-step help in applying for financial aid during College Goal Sunday at 2 p.m. Feb. 21 in the Viterbo University Reinhart Center.
Students will receive information and tips that will be useful in applying for aid at any public or private college. College Goal Sunday is a nationwide event designed to assist families in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, an essential first step in attaining financial aid for higher education. Financial aid experts will volunteer their time to help students and their parents access federal and state financial aid, which can make earning a college degree possible.
Students are encouraged to attend the event with their parents. Items to bring include parents’ and/or student’s completed federal income tax return for 2009, W-2 statements, and other 2009 income and/or benefits information. If parents are unable to attend, students may attend alone and bring this information with them.
