Aiken Technical College to Host a College Goal SC Event Feb 27

Students, families can receive free financial aid guidance from experts
 
(February 4, 2016, Aiken, SC) Area college-bound students and families can receive free assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) during a College Goal South Carolina event at Aiken Technical College (ATC).
 
The event will be held Saturday, Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the College’s Enrollment Services Center. Financial aid experts from ATC and the University of South Carolina Aiken will be available to guide students and their families through the FAFSA and answer questions about financial aid.
 
“College Goal South Carolina is intended to provide students and families the financial aid information they need in order to pay for post-secondary education,” said Sue Sims, ATC Director of Financial Aid. “The FAFSA is the first step to receiving federal financial aid as well as most state and institutional aid.”
 
This event is open to the public. Those planning to attend or attending other colleges or universities are also welcome to attend.
 
Participants should bring the following documents:
  • Social security number
  • Alien registration number if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Most recent (2016) federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of income earned
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
  • Records of untaxed income (if applicable)
  • Federal Student Aid ID to sign electronically
 
The above information is also needed for parents if the student is considered to be a dependent. To determine whether the student is dependent or independent, please visit www.studentaid.ed.gov/pubs.

Federal Student Aid IDs can be obtained from https://fsaid.ed.gov. This ID is necessary to sign and submit the FAFSA.
