Colleges Partner to Help Families Navigate the FAFSA Process

Aiken Technical College (ATC), University of South Carolina Aiken (UofSC Aiken), and the SC Commission on Higher Education (CHE) have partnered for the second annual Fall FAFSA Days to help area families navigate the federal student aid application process.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to determine a student’s eligibility to receive federal financial aid such as grants, work-study, and student loans to pay for college. In some cases, it is also needed to determine a student’s eligibility for state and local funding for college.

Fall FAFSA Days will be held November 10 and November 12. Financial aid staff from ATC and UofSC Aiken will be available virtually and in-person to assist with completion of the FAFSA and answer questions. Students and their families are welcome to attend this free event, regardless of where they plan to go to college.

Virtual sessions are available on both days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. No registration is required. For links to join a virtual session, visit https://www.atc.edu/recruitmentandstudentexperience.

In-person appointments will also be available on both days from 4-7 p.m. on the ATC campus in the 700 building. Advance registration is required by visiting volunteersignup.org/XJYEA. Those signing up for in-person appointments are asked to bring no more than one guest. Masks are required and social distancing guidelines will be observed.

Attendees will need the below information to complete the 2021-22 FAFSA, which covers fall 2021 through summer 2022. Those who are dependent students will need to bring information for their parent(s)/guardian(s) as well.
