Getting the financial aid needed to attend college often seems daunting; many don’t know how to begin the application process. Surry Community College hopes to ease financial aid concerns and answer application questions by hosting FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Day on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The free event will be open to the public at two locations – Rooms E-146 and E-148 at Surry Community College, 630 S. Main St., Dobson and Room A-218 at The Yadkin Center, 1001 College Drive, Yadkinville. College aid professionals will be onsite to help participants complete and submit the FAFSA forms for financial aid in the 2017-2018 school year. This event is open to anyone attending any college.
Before attending FAFSA Day, it is important to prepare by obtaining a copy of you or your family’s 2015 tax information; student should take W-2 forms to the event. Additionally, participants should acquire an FSA (Federal Student Aid) ID for themselves and one parent ahead of time at fsaid.ed.gov.
