Hocking College Hosts College Goal Sunday

Hocking College is the Athens County site for “College Goal Sunday,” a statewide financial aid event, taking place on February 10, 2013 at 2 p.m.

This free event provides students and their families with assistance to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the federal application that is required to receive federal financial aid including the Federal Pell Grant and student loans, as well as the need-based state grants.

Due to the great demand expected for assistance in completing the FASFA, families are encouraged to register at www.ohiocollegegoalsunday.org or by calling 800.233.6734.

The FAFSA is key when it comes to funding a college education. It helps families overcome financial barriers that prevent students from attending their institution of choice. Studies show that 50 percent of students are more likely to attend college if they complete the FAFSA.

Students should bring their social security card, driver’s license, IRS 1040 tax return and W2s, their parents’ IRS 1040 tax return and W2s and any other benefit and/or income information to the event. Attendees will register at the Light Hall Main Concourse at Hocking College Main Campus. No alternate date for the event has been scheduled in case of inclement weather.

The event is presented by the Ohio Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (OASFAA) and endorsed by the Ohio Board of Regents.
