WISCONSIN – Since 2006, over 25,000 Wisconsin students have received free help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at College Goal Wisconsin events held throughout the state. Financial aid professionals and other educators volunteer at the event to help students and their families complete the FAFSA.
Anyone who is planning to pursue a postsecondary education in the 2021-22 academic year should complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is the form that must be submitted in order to be considered for federal and state financial aid including grants and loans. Students pursuing a postsecondary education in 2021-22 can complete the FAFSA beginning Oct. 1.
College Goal Wisconsin will hold virtual FAFSA completion events on Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28 and Nov. 4 and 11. The starting time, a list of what is needed to complete the FAFSA, and other information can be found by visiting the College Goal Wisconsin website at www.collegegoalwi.org.
In addition to getting professional help completing the FAFSA, attendees will have the opportunity to enter an online scholarship application. The scholarship can be used at any private or public accredited college/university in the United States. The winner must be attending college in the fall of 2021 as a full-time undergraduate student.
