The Kishwaukee College Financial Aid Office will be holding workshops to assist local students with filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on Jan. 23 and Feb. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Room A1225 at the Kishwaukee College Conference Center. If there is inclement weather on Jan. 23, the FAFSA Completion Night “snow date” will be Feb. 4.
The FAFSA form is the first step in filing for financial aid to attend a college or university. The FAFSA completed this spring is to apply for financial aid for the 2014-15 academic year. FAFSA Completion Nights allow students and their families an opportunity to fill out the FAFSA form with financial aid professionals from Kishwaukee College as well as area high school guidance counselors. Any student who would like assistance is welcome to attend the FAFSA Completion Nights.
Pam Wagener, coordinator of Financial Aid at Kishwaukee College, noted that students and their families should bring all 2013 income verification, including IRS 2013 W-2 forms and the IRS 1040 forms. Wagener also encouraged students and their families to go to www.pin.ed.gov to get their Personal Identification Number (PIN), which is required for federal student aid, prior to attending the FAFSA Completion Night.
