Financial aid seminar at Vincennes

VINCENNES — Financial aid professionals will be on hand at Vincennes University’s Vincennes and Jasper campuses to help college-bound students and their families open the door to financial aid during College Goal Sunday on Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. The Vincennes Campus event will take place at the Shake Learning Resources Center and on the Jasper Campus in the Classroom Building. Statewide, College Goal Sunday will take place at 39 total sites.

This free event is designed to help college-bound Indiana students and their families to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). On-site help will be available from financial aid experts, primarily from Indiana colleges and universities.

The FAFSA is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, loans, and scholarships at most colleges, universities, and vocational/technical schools nationwide and must be filed by March 10 to be eligible for state aid. Completing this form correctly and by the deadline is sometimes perceived to be complicated and time consuming. In one afternoon at College Goal Sunday, students and their families can get free help and file the form online.

Students should attend with their parent(s) or guardian(s) and bring their parents’ completed 2013 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 forms, and other 2013 income and benefits information. Students who worked last year should bring their income information. Students 24 years or older may attend alone and bring their own completed 2013 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 form, or other 2013 income and benefits information. Before coming to the event, students and parents may apply for their U.S. Department of Education Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) at www.pin.ed.gov. Even if students and parents do not yet have their 2013 tax returns completed, they can submit the FAFSA using estimated figures in order to meet the March 10 deadline.

Students who attend any of the College Goal Sunday sites and submit a completed evaluation form will be automatically entered in a drawing for an educational prize. Winners will be notified in March and prizes will be sent directly to the higher education institutions selected by the winning students.
