Financial aid professionals will provide assistance completing the FAFSA from 2-4 p.m. Feb. 14 through Dyersburg State Community College as part of the statewide College Goal Sunday effort.
Students and parents are invited to take advantage of the free service.
The Student Center on the Dyersburg State campus and the Tennessee Technology Center in Covington will be two of 35 sites statewide hosting College Goal Sunday.
College Goal Sunday is a non-profit program that provides free information and assistance to Tennessee families applying for financial assistance for higher education. It mobilizes professionals to help families of college-bound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Students and their parents should bring completed 2009 IRS 1040 tax returns; W-2 statements and other 2009 income and benefits information; current bank statements; untaxed income records for the previous year (Social Security, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, welfare or veterans benefits records); a driver’s license, if they possess one; and an alien registration card if they are not a U.S. citizen. This information is helpful to complete the FAFSA, but is not required to attend.
