The financial aid planning processing can be confusing, overwhelming, and challenging. However, learning how to navigate through all the information that you get can be easy with some help. Please attend our College Financial Aid Information meeting on Wed. January 2nd at 7 pm in our café. There will be several important items shared about applying for College Aid and completing the Financial Aid Form. Faith Phillips, Director of Financial Aid at OSU Newark will present that evening.
In addition to the Wednesday, January 2nd meeting, you can sign up to attend College GOAL Sunday on February 10th, 2013 at 2 pm. Various colleges will have their expert Financial Aid Advisors available to answer questions and assist families with the electronic filing of the FAFSA From. You can sign up now at www.ohiocollegegoalsunday.org or register by phone at 1-800-233-6734, which is the Ohio Board of Regents. College GOAL Sunday will take place at the following four locations:
Graduates of 2013 can submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) after January 1st, 2013. Please note that it’s FREE; therefore, any website that wants to charge you to complete the FAFSA may not be legitimate. You are encouraged to go to www.pin.ed.gov to order your personal identification because you will need to have it before you can file the electronic FAFSA.
