            Information covered will include the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, deadlines, and tips that will make completing the FAFSA easier. A counselor will also talk about the financial aid process and the different types of aid that are available to families and students. Finally, the counselor will talk about different situations that can affect aid, such as income, academic progress and whether or not a student is considered a dependent or independent student. There will be time for questions during or after the presentation.

 

            On Nov. 6, the Financial Aid staff will offer a FAFSA completion night from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Pitt-Bradford Sport and Fitness Center computer lab room 158. A FAFSA completion event will also be offered in Warren from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Warren-Forrest Higher Ed Council at 589 Hospital Dr.

 

            Those sessions will enable families to complete the FAFSA online with aid from the staff. Those interested should bring their 2017 Federal tax return with related W-2 forms. Families should also bring Federal Student Aid user names and passwords, if they have them, and investment statements for assets other than retirement accounts.
