Free FAFSA filing help at Plymouth High School November 7

PLYMOUTH, Ind. – Indiana students who need help filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can get help for free during the 33rd annual College Goal Sunday event at Plymouth High School on November 7.

Staff from Marian University’s Ancilla College will be helping students file FAFSA forms at 2 p.m. at the school.

The FAFSA form is required for students to be considered for state and federal grants, scholarships, and Federal student loans at most colleges, universities, and technical/vocational schools.

“Filing the FAFSA can seem daunting to Hoosier students and families,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “However, it’s an important step for anyone interested in education beyond high school. College Goal Sunday provides an opportunity for individuals to receive one-on-one assistance from financial aid experts to insure their FAFSA is completed accurately before the deadline.”

Students do not have to attend Ancilla College to attend this help session.

Students who attend the event and submit a completed evaluation form will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a $1,000 scholarship.

The November 7 event is the first of two College Goal Sundays offered by the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association during this FAFSA filing season, Bill Wozniak, co-chair of College Goal Sunday, said.

Students who plan on attending College Goal Sunday should come with their parent(s) or guardian(s).

Parents should bring completed 2020 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 Forms, and other 2020 income and benefits information with them to the event.

Students who worked should also bring their income information.

Students who are 24 years of age or older can attend alone and should bring their completed 2020 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 Form, or other 2020 income and benefits information.

Parents and students are also encouraged to apply for their U.S. Department of Education FSA IDs here before logging in to the event.
