FAFSA Night Helps Prospective Students

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

High school students and their families are invited to a Free Application for Financial Student Aid Night on Tuesday, March 24, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the University of West Georgia.

The workshop will take place in the Technology-enhanced Learning Center, Room 1112, and is designed for high school seniors, UWG students and any citizen with a social security card.

Financial Aid volunteers will be on hand to help students complete their FAFSA form. Tax returns, a registered personal identification number and other records are required to complete an application. To view what to bring to FAFSA Night, go to the UWG financial aid website at www.westga.edu/finaid/.

The PIN is necessary to sign the FAFSA electronically and it is recommended that applicants register for the PIN as soon as possible at
http://www.pin.ed.gov/.

Created by the U.S. Department of Education, FAFSA ensures that eligible individuals can benefit from federal funding or federally guaranteed financial assistance for education beyond their high school years.
