College Goal Georgia Helps Students Get Cash for College

 

College-bound students invited to event

Financial aid experts will be available at Okefenokee Technical College (OTC) to assist college-bound students and their families with completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at this year’s College Goal Georgia event.

All college-bound students, regardless of the college or university they plan to attend, are invited to attend one of the College Goal Georgia workshops hosted by OTC. The first workshop will be held on the Alma Campus, Room 142, Thursday, March 13, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. A second workshop will be held on the Waycross Campus in the OTC Library (Building 1000) computer lab, Room 1102, on Thursday, March 20, from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. 

Filling out the FAFSA is the first critical step in applying for federal and state grants, loans and scholarships to help pay for college. College Goal Georgia, part of the national College Goal SundaySM initiative, is sponsored by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC). It is a FREE event where volunteers help students and families who need assistance completing the FAFSA. The federal government requires a FAFSA from all students seeking financial aid for college.

The College Goal Sunday program was created by the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association with funding from Lilly Endowment, Inc., and with supplemental support from Lumina Foundation for Education. Currently, College Goal Sunday events are being held in 40 states and the District of Columbia and are funded in part by USA Funds.

GSFC helps students achieve their educational goals by administering financial aid programs and advocating for Georgia students and other state institutions on issues related to financing higher education. GSFC administers the HOPE Scholarship and Grant programs as well as other state-and lottery-funded scholarship, grant and service-cancelable loan programs.
