College Goal Sunday event to help students file for college aid

February 27th is College Goal Sunday for college-bound students at Indiana schools. And there will be locations in Columbus and Franklin to get help filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

The FAFSA is required for students to be considered for financial aid including grants, scholarships, and student loans. It must be filed by April 15 to be eligible for Indiana financial aid.

College Goal Sunday will be held at 2 p.m. Feb. 27th  in Columbus at IUPUC on Central Avenue and in Franklin at Ivy Tech Community College on McClain Drive. Financial aid professionals will be on hand to walk participants through the filing process.

Students and their parents or guardians should bring their 2020 completed 1040 tax returns, plus other income and benefits information from 2020. If the student worked, they should also bring tax and income information. Students older than 24 may attend alone.

Students who attend College Goal Sunday and submit a completed evaluation form will be entered in a drawing for one of five $1,000 scholarships.
