College Goal Sunday 2013 set for February 24
INDIANAPOLIS – Financial aid professionals will be volunteering at 41 sites across Indiana to help college-bound students and their families open the door to financial aid during College Goal Sunday, set for 2 p.m. (local time), February 24, 2013.
The free program is designed to assist Indiana students seeking undergraduate admission to a college or technical school in 2013 in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, loans and scholarships at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide and must be filed by March 10 to be eligible for state aid. Completing this required form correctly and by the deadline is sometimes perceived to be complicated and time consuming. In one afternoon at College Goal Sunday, students and their families can get free help and file the form online.
Now in its 24th year, College Goal Sunday, a charitable program of the Indiana Student Financial Aid Assoication (ISFAA), has helped more than 88,000 Indiana students and families complete the FAFSA properly and on time, opening the door to financial aid for college.
