Terra Community College offers FAFSA workshops
If you’re planning to attend college in the 2009-2010 academic year, put “Completing the FAFSA” at the top of your to-do list.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is vital to the process of college affordability and should be completed as early as possible by anyone who will be attending college beginning in August 2009.
Because the FAFSA is so important – and considered intimidating by some – the financial aid staff at Terra Community College is offering free FAFSA workshops for their students, prospective students and anyone else who needs the assistance.
The dates are Jan. 23, Feb. 6 and 20, and March 6 and 20, 2009. The sessions will start at 2 p.m. in Building A, Room 204.
Those attending the workshop should bring their 2008 federal tax information (IRS forms 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ) as well as any other pertinent income information such as checking and/or savings account statements. And if you’ve established a PIN number, bring that along, too.
“We don’t want anyone to put off going to college just because the paperwork scares them,” said Ed Recker, Director of Financial Aid at Terra. “Financial aid is often what makes college attainable, and the FAFSA is the only way to secure that financial aid.”
