Indiana’s College Goal Sunday goes virtual
This year, Indiana’s College Goal Sunday on March 7 will be virtual only due to the pandemic. For two hours, FAFSA filing experts from across Indiana will be available to help families fill out the federal student aid forms.
The virtual event will be held from 2 - 4 p.m. ET. The deadline for Indiana state grant programs is April 15.
To join the event, visit College Goal Sunday's website.
There are a few things you’ll need before attending the event.
FSA ID (It is strongly encouraged to create this prior to the event)
Every student AND parent should apply for a FSA ID at STUDENTAID.GOV. This will serve as your electronic signature on the FAFSA.
PERSONAL DOCUMENTS - STUDENTS & PARENTS
- Social Security Number
- Driver’s License Number
- Alien registration number or permanent residence card if you are not a U.S. citizen.
PROOF OF INCOME - STUDENTS & PARENTS
2019 W-2 forms or other records of money earned or received. Untaxed income, including workers compensation: child support: housing, food and other living allowances: veterans benefits, etc.
TAX DOCUMENTS - STUDENTS & PARENTS
