Financial Aid Events and Presentations
College Goal Sunday • February 22, 2015 • 2:00–4:00 p.m.
Sponsored by College Goal Sunday.org and presented by the IU Southeast Financial Aid office with other financial aid professionals from area schools and businesses.
- Audience: all college-bound students and/or parents
College Goal Sunday is a program that helps college-bound students who qualify for undergraduate admission to a college or technical school in the upcoming year and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). College Goal Sunday provides on-site help from financial aid experts. Most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools in the nation require students seeking federal financial aid, including grants and loans, to complete the FAFSA. The College Goal Sunday event will help all college-bound students complete the FAFSA properly.
Indiana residents: Your FAFSA form must be received by the federal processor on or before March 10. Twenty-first Century Scholars must complete and submit a FAFSA form to claim their Twenty-first Century Scholarships.
What to bring
Students 23 years of age or younger should attend with their parent(s) or guardian(s) and bring their parents’ completed 2014 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 form or other 2014 income, asset and benefits information. Students who worked last year should also bring their earnings information. Older students may attend alone and bring their own income information.
