Apply for Federal College Aid Feb. 22
Alamance Community College financial aid officers will be available on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. until 12:00 noon to help high school seniors and current ACC students complete and submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms.
The FAFSA is required to be considered for all federal and most state financial aid, including scholarships and grants.
High school seniors need to register for the event through the College Foundation of North Carolina (www.cfnc.org/event/fafsa/fafsa_nc_map.jsp). High school students do not need to be planning to attend the college hosting the event.
Here’s the 411 on FAFSA Day:
- The application process takes about 30 minutes.
- Although not required, it’s best if parents and students come together.
- Parents and students need to bring all tax documents (federal 1040 tax forms) and income statements they have.
- Each participating student and one parent are encouraged to obtain Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) from the U.S. Department of Education website, www.pin.ed.gov, prior to FAFSA Day.
Says Jessica Turner, Financial Aid Office: “FAFSA is for everyone, regardless of your age, your income level or where you want to go to school. It’s your first step in finding the money to pay for college. Our professionals will be onsite to help students and parents complete the application and answer any basic financial aid questions they may have.”
