West Virginia will host the third annual College Goal Sunday event this Sunday. The event is an opportunity for students and their families to get free help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Local financial aid professionals will offer one-on-one support to anyone attending college.
The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m., locally at Shepherd University on the 2nd floor of White Hall. Other locations statewide can be found by visiting www.cfwv.com.
The workshops are open to anyone, regardless of age or income. High school seniors, current college students and adults who want to go to college can attend.
College Goal Sunday is coordinated by the College Foundation of West Virginia, the West Virginia Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, the YMCA, GEAR UP and TRiO.
Free tax preparation, courtesy of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, will also be available at the event for those students and family members seeking FAFSA assistance.
