Financial Aid Office offering FAFSA completion sessions

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — The Financial Aid Office at Pennsylvania College of Technology is offering its resources to help current college students, prospective students and families complete the 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

The college is hosting two free FAFSA completion sessions on its main campus in November and January for staff to assist with the online application. The FAFSA is required by colleges and universities to determine student eligibility for federal and state grants, loans and scholarships.

The first session will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11, and the second will take place from 3:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 23. Both will be in Room 1049 of the college’s Student and Administrative Services Center. Students attending or planning to enroll at 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 application during one of the sessions should create a student and/or parent FSA ID at least three days prior at fsaid.ed.gov. Attendees should also bring copies of their 2016 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.

Most student and parent taxpayers will be eligible to use the time-saving IRS Data Retrieval process during the sessions.

“I am pleased that our staff is again able to offer this opportunity and provide personal service for current and prospective students to ensure they are maximizing their financial aid resources,” said Dennis L. Correll, associate dean for enrollment management at Penn College.

Admissions staff and student ambassadors will be available at the sessions to answer questions about Penn College and to offer campus tours.
