College-bound students and their families can get help filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on Feb. 23 during College Goal Sunday, a statewide charitable collaboration involving the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA) in cooperation with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
This program has been a valuable resource for thousands of Hoosiers over the past 31 years, helping prospective students fill out paperwork that determines one’s eligibility for financial aid, which can often be a deciding factor in where one attends school. Most universities and technical schools require students seeking federal financial aid, including grants and loans, to complete the FAFSA and have it returned before April 15.
College Goal Sunday provides on-site help from financial aid experts in 37 locations across the state, and the programs will begin promptly at 2 p.m.
Students should attend College Goal Sunday with their parents or guardians and bring completed 2018 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 forms and other 2018 income and benefits information. Students 24 years of age or older can attend alone and bring their own forms and information.
