Free FAFSA Completion Session to Be Offered March 20

The Financial Aid Office at Pennsylvania College of Technology will offer a free session in March to help students, prospective students and families understand how to complete the 2012-13 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The session will be held from 4:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, in the Advisement Center on the first floor of Penn College’s Student and Administrative Services Center on the main campus in Williamsport.

Financial Aid Office staff will assist attendees in completing and submitting their 2012-13 FAFSAs using the center’s computers.

The FAFSA is required by colleges and universities to determine if students are eligible for scholarships, federal and state grants, and student and parent loans. The primary goal of the session is to assist individuals and families in completing the FAFSA application accurately so that funds can be made available to students pursuing higher education. Parents and students attending any college or university are invited to receive this free assistance.

All attendees who plan to submit a FAFSA during this session should bring copies of their 2011 financial documents including federal tax returns, W-2 forms, untaxed income statements, child support paid or received amounts, as well as amounts for their current assets.

In addition, families that submit their federal tax returns electronically at least one to two weeks prior to the FAFSA session will, in most cases, be eligible for the time-saving IRS Data Retrieval process.

Students who are 23 or younger should attend with a parent or guardian.

Registration is required for the FAFSA completion session. For more information or to preregister for the event call the Financial Aid Office at 570-327-4766 or email .
