One of the most daunting tasks facing anyone applying for college is filling out the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FASFA). In order to help make the application process easier, Williamsburg Technical College will host “College Goal South Carolina 2016” on Saturday, February 20, from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. in the auditorium in Building A on the campus at 601 MLK Jr. Ave., Kingstree.
The event is geared to assist students and their families/guardians with filling out the FASFA. Persons planning to attend any college and those who plan to attend Williamsburg Technical College are invited to participate.
Participants must bring: Social Security Number; alien registration number (if not a US citizen); most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned; bank statements and records of investments (if applicable); records of untaxed income (if applicable); Federal Student Aid PIN to sign in electronically (if you do not have one, visit www.pin.ed.gov). If participants are not dependent students, items from parents/guardians are not necessary. It is possible to transfer federal tax return information into the FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
College Goal South Carolina offers an opportunity for all college bound students and their families/guardians to receive free one-on-one assistance with completing the FAFSA as well as guidance on navigating financial aid. Dedicated and knowledgeable financial aid personnel from local colleges along with community volunteers and business leaders assist in this statewide event.
