College Goal Sunday helps families apply for aid Jan. 13
College Goal Sunday, which provides free help to families applying for college financial aid, will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13, at 17 sites across the state, including the Cooper Drive campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lexington at 470 Cooper Drive. The program begins promptly at 2 p.m., and most sites close at 4 p.m. All attendees will be eligible to enter into a drawing for a chance to win a scholarship that can be used at any Kentucky school.
At College Goal Sunday, financial aid professionals from Kentucky will help students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the form students must submit to receive federal and state student aid.
College Goal Sunday is sponsored by the Kentucky Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (KASFAA). It is funded by the Lumina Foundation for Education, the YMCA, and KnowHow2GoKY.org.
Students are encouraged to attend College Goal Sunday with a parent or guardian. They should bring their and their parents’ completed 2012 IRS 1040 tax returns and any other 2012 income and benefit information. If families have not completed their taxes, they are encouraged to bring their 2011 IRS 1040 tax forms and last paycheck stubs from 2012 so that financial aid professionals will be able to show families how to use estimated information to submit the FAFSA and how to go back and update their information once taxes are completed. Everything else — pens, pencils and FAFSA worksheet — will be provided.
