Financial aid professionals will be available at Vincennes University’s Vincennes and Jasper campuses during College Goal Sunday February 25th at 2 pm.
The Vincennes Campus event will take place at the Shake Learning Resources Center and on the Jasper Campus in the Classroom Building.
The program offers assistance and advice to help college-bound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.
Most colleges, universities, and vocational/technical schools throughout the U.S. require students seeking federal financial aid, including grants and loans, to complete the FAFSA.
The FAFSA must be received by the federal processor on or before April 15th to be considered “on-time” for Indiana state grant funding.
21st Century Scholars are required to complete and submit a FAFSA to claim their Scholarships.
Students should attend with their parents or guardians, and parents should bring completed 2016 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 forms, and other 2016 income and benefits information.
Students who worked last year should bring their income information as well. Students aged 24 or older may attend alone and bring their own completed 2016 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 form, or other 2016 income and benefits information.
Students and parents are encouraged to apply for their U.S. Department of Education FSA IDs at fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm before coming to the event.
Below is a checklist for College Day Sunday on Feb. 25th.
