College Financial Aid Seminars Offered

Financial aid professionals will be available at Rogers High School, Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 6 p.m. and at Middletown High School Thursday, Jan. 28, at 6 p.m. to provide hands-on assistance, offering line-by-line explanation of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as well as guidance on the financial aid process and application deadlines.

Students interested in attending a postsecondary institution who need financial assistance to pay for college should attend. It is recommended that dependent students bring their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) with them to the session. Students should also bring the parent’s completed 2015 federal tax return (if completed), 2015 W-2 forms and all other 2015 income and benefits information. In addition, if students worked during 2015, they should bring their completed 2015 federal tax return and any other income information. Students 24 years or older may attend alone and bring their own completed 2015 tax forms or other 2015 income and benefits information.

The FAFSA form is required for students seeking federal financial aid, including grants and loans, at educational institutions nationwide.
