KSCB News - February 21, 2014 8:11 am
Seward County Community College/Area Technical School will be participating in The ‘National’ College Goal Sunday program. College Goal Sunday provides assistance to families who are applying for financial aid. Volunteers will assist individuals in filling out the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) from 2-4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 23 in the Liberal High School Library.
By delivering help to families in our community, College Goal Sunday helps ensure that students get the help they need crossing the paper barrier as they qualify for financial aid, said Donna Fisher, SCCC/ATS director of financial aid.
College Goal Sunday is open to all college-bound students regardless of age. Whether a prospective student is going to be a recent high school graduate or someone returning to education later in life, College Goal Sunday will help them complete the FAFSA, accurately and on time. A $500 scholarship will also be awarded to one student who will be a first semester freshman in the fall of 2014.
For the 2014-15 school year you will need financial information from 2013. To accurately complete the FAFSA please bring the following items with you:
Your Social Security card. It is important that you enter your Social Security Number correctly!
