: Workshop about Applying for Financial Aid
You are invited to attend a workshop about applying for financial aid for college on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, at 7:30 – 8:30 A.M. at Coosa Valley Academy. Mr. Brett Pritchard from Central Alabama Community College will be providing information about completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and securing financial aid for college. This workshop is applicable for all seniors planning to attend college. If your family is interested in financial aid of any kind (scholarships, grants, loans, or work-study) for any college, you will have to complete the FAFSA.
The FAFSA must be completed prior to March 1 for most scholarship applications. Because of this, we are advising that you do two things prior to the workshop on February 4. It is to your advantage if you have already filed your 2014 income taxes, and you must have acquired a PIN number in order to complete the FAFSA. Both the student and parent must have a PIN number.
To obtain a PIN number, please go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. We have enclosed the instructions you will get at that site to obtain your PIN. This is also the website where you will complete the FAFSA online. We have also enclosed the list of documents you will need to complete a FAFSA. Please note the .gov suffix and ONLY go to that website.
We hope that you will plan to attend this informative workshop. We look forward to seeing you at the Financial Aid Planning for College Workshop at 7:30 A.M. on Wednesday, February 4, 2015.
