Description:
 Volunteers for Iowa College Goal Sunday will help students and their families fill out and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of a national program that helps students qualify for federal financial aid. The FAFSA, which is available in free paper and electronic forms from the U.S. Department of Education, is the first step in the qualification process.
Students or parents may attend individually, but it is recommended that students bring at least one parent or guardian along.
To complete the FAFSA, families should bring, for both the student and parent, the following:
• Social Security number, driver’s license number and date of birth
• Most recent federal and state tax returns
• W-2 forms or other records of income earned last year
• Current bank statements and investment records
• Records of untaxed income received last year
• 2012 business and farm records
• Alien registration numbers if not a U.S. citizen
Students and parents may also register in advance for federal personal identification numbers (PINs) to electronically sign the forms and make future changes. To request a PIN, visit www.pin.ed.gov.
For more information about the event and to obtain a list of materials needed to complete the FAFSA, please visit the Iowa College Goal Sunday Web site, www.IowaCGS.org. Details are also available from the Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) at (877) 272-4692 or CGS@ICANsucceed.org.
