Financial aid experts will be available to assist college-bound students and their families complete and submit the FAFSA at this year’s College Goal Georgia Event to be held at Altamaha Technical College on Tuesday, March 18, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. This event will be in the Computer Lab on the Baxley Campus.
Filling out the FAFSA is the first critical step in applying for federal and state grants, loans and scholarships to help pay for college.
College Goal Georgia, is sponsored by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC). It is a FREE event where volunteers help students and families who need assistance completing the FAFSA, with an emphasis on helping low-income, first-generation families. The federal government requires a FAFSA from all students seeking financial aid for college. “GSFC and College Goal Georgia want to ensure finances and completing the FAFSA are not barriers to attending college for anyone, especially students from under-represented communities,” said Angie Newell, College Goal Georgia’s statewide coordinator.
This year, students can enter to win an iPad and grocery and gas cards will be raffled off to participating families at each event.
