Penn College offering free FAFSA assistance

The Financial Aid Office at Pennsylvania College of Technology is offering its resources to help current and future college students and their families complete the 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Colleges and universities require the FAFSA to determine student eligibility for federal and state grants, federal loans and some scholarships. Penn College is hosting two free FAFSA completion sessions in November and February to aid the online application process.

The sessions are scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Tuesday, Feb. 22, from 4:30-7 p.m. in Room 202 of the college’s Madigan Library. One-on-one assistance in the Financial Aid Office is also available via appointment. Registration is required for both options.

Students currently enrolled or planning to attend any college or university are invited. Students who are 23 or younger should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Most first-time students can complete the FAFSA within 45 minutes. Attendees planning to submit their FAFSA during one of the completion sessions should create a student and/or parent FSA ID at least three days prior at the Federal Student Aid website. They should also bring copies of their 2020 financial documents, including federal tax returns, W-2 forms, untaxed income statements, record of child support paid or received, and amount of their current assets.

Financial Aid staff will help student and parent taxpayers use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which allows FAFSA filers to electronically transfer federal tax return information into the FAFSA.

“Our Financial Aid team is excited to once again host this important event,” said Jessica S. Hunter, director of financial aid at Penn College. “Completing the FAFSA is essential. It truly is the cornerstone application in the financial aid process. Our goal is to help each student establish a foundation that puts them in position to maximize all financial aid resources. We understand that the financial aid process can be stressful, but we are here to assist students and their families successfully navigate the process.”

To register for the FAFSA completion session or one-on-one in-office assistance, visit, email or call the Financial Aid Office at 570-327-4766.
