WAUSAU – College-bound students can receive free, professional financial aid assistance at College Goal Wisconsin, a statewide event that will be hosted at Northcentral Technical College’s Wausau campus.
The event, which will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 7, is designed to help Wisconsin students and their families submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, which is needed to qualify for federal and state financial aid including grants and loans.
Financial aid professionals and other educators volunteer at the event to help students and their families complete the FAFSA. Anyone who is planning to pursue a college education in the 2019-20 academic year should complete the FAFSA. That includes high school seniors, continuing college students, transfer students and adult students considering pursuing higher education.
To complete the FAFSA at the event, attendees are encouraged to bring additional documentation such as a driver’s license, 2017 federal tax return and W2s. Those who are considered a dependent student will need these items for their parents. However, if a parent isn’t available, students are still encouraged to attend.
Attendees also will have the opportunity to enter a scholarship drawing.
